Carrickbyrne Hill Trail



This trail follows forest road and path within Carrickbyrne Wood (once part of the Jeffares Estate) as it traverses through mixed forest, passes a holy well and a mast. Pass close to an oak wood which is on what was a Camp Field used by United Irish insurgents who gathered here in preparation for marching on New Ross in 1798. Other landmarks include the site of a hedge school and a mass rock.

The walker is treated to breath-taking views of the neighbouring countryside as well as Mount Leinster, the Blackstairs Mountains and the coast in the direction of Hook Head. There are three other Slí na Slainte trails at this trailhead.  

In association with Sport Ireland.
