ABBEYLEIX BOARDWALK OVER THE BOG
Enjoy a walk through the stark but stunning landscape of the Irish bog. A wooden boardwalk loop takes you over the bog itself, giving you a close up look at the unique flora & fauna in this ethereal habitat.
Kids love balancing along the boardwalk beams, and the route down to the boardwalk is broken up with quirky things along the way, (a ‘bug hotel’, fairy doors, a giant nest, a woven willow house), which encourage younger walkers to keep going.
The entrance to this walk is found at the far end of Abbeyleix town, just past The Abbeyleix Manor Hotel. Park in the hotel carpark, and you can pop into the hotel for lunch afterwards. Or try one of the excellent cafes in the pretty Heitage Town of Abbeyleix itself. We recommend Bramleys – which is very family friendly and serves excellent food, and Mueller & O’Connell Bakery for fantastic coffee and fresh patisserie.
