The Castle Trail is stroller/buggy accessible if you have a stroller that can handle a few rocky bumps. We were able to do the whole thing in our travel stroller, but if you have an expensive stroller, then this is probably one to skip. The Castle Trail is a 3km loop (see trail map pics). It's walkable for toddlers, and... More

Beautiful walks in the middle of the countryside, marked walks and pathways - wevy safe for children, listen to the birds singing in the trees! Dromore is located about 6 miles from Ennis so you can cycle there.

This walk has all for the irish eastern island experience. There is a footbridge, benches by a lake to sandwich coffee or lunch and forest walks. I visited on a rainy day which had a dull feel to it but still enjoyable and held a quaint energy but I imagine this place comes alive on a sunny day. Highly Recommended

Footpaths much improved for walking. Different lengths of walks. Most enjoyable . Fishing can be carried out in the lake. Great place to bring your dog for a walk

I regularly visit Dromore Woods for peace and quiet. I find it truly magical. I go at times when there are few people, but because the forest is big, you can always be on your own there. Highly recommended.

Dromore wood is a wonderful facility near Ruan /Tubber in north Clare about twenty minutes drive from Ennis into the countryside towards the Burren. There is a lakeside walk and a ruined castle all offering great photo opportunities. A very pleasant place to walk the dog on a dry day and get back in touch with nature.
