As part of Heritage Week 2017, Clare Walks Ltd. organised a FREE guided 6km walk in the stunning Dromore Wood Nature Reserve in Ruan. The walk was for anyone over 50 years of age who was interested in getting active and staying healthy and was organised in conjunction with Go For Life.
We had a great turn out for this guided walk with a fab group of 24 ladies (& 2 brave gentlemen).
We had a most enjoyable walk along woodland paths, passing river and lakes and a woodland full of a variety of species and interesting historical and archaeological sites. AND of course there was plenty of chat!
Looking forward to our next outing in September.
Cahermurphy Loop Review – 01/05/2017 – by Elsie from Clare
Lovely walk. Don’t let the idea of some minor roads walking put you off as the views across the lake make it all worthwhile. Lovely variety of woodland, trails, forest, and open road walking. Especially loved the green path walk down towards Flagmount. The village is a perfect spot for an ice-cream break before the final 3km.
What a great review of the Cahermurphy Loop on the East Clare Way – thanks Elsie.
With weather like this, who wouldn’t want to hit the trails!
In conjunction with Age & Opportunity Ireland, Clare Walks Ltd. organised a free guided walk for anyone over the age of 50 who is interested in getting active and staying healthy. I have to say it was such a lovely morning – the weather, the setting, the walks and of course the company. Dromore Woods is definitely a place everyone should visit and it is suitable for all ages. The views, the woodland trails and the tranquility are all amazing – in the middle of the forest you can sit and hear a chorus of birds singing their hearts out. And it is so well signposted that you cannot get lost. Unfortunately some of the trails were flooded but it didn’t “dampen” our spirits and we all agreed that we will take another trip there in the coming months to do some more exploring.
Our next walk for Active Agers will take place on Thursday 30th March @ 10am from Quin to Mooghaun Hillfort – another amazing setting – with a stop in the woods for a snack and a chat, before returning to Quin. Make sure you come along.
