Lovely, safe walk, where you meet loads of locals and lots to see and gives you a real feel for Castleisland. The Old Mill, the Church and you can deviate off it at loads of bridges and head down the Main Street and do lots of shopping! Great shops and coffee shops as well.

Walk by the river and make sure you stop off and visit the church which has an interesting altarpiece

If you are in castle island then this is a delightful walk to do. Very accessible, just round the back of the main street. Very relaxing and well maintained, at the same time, not very busy and beautiful scenery. Definitely worth doing in the afternoon or evening.

this would be a lovely walk only for continually having to mind your step in case of stepping in dog dirt. So avoid especially if you have a buggy because you wont see it until it is too late. There are loads of dog walkers using this walk, yet none of them seem to clean up after their pets. The... More

A very pleasant walk that runs parallel to the main street in CastleIsland but seems miles away. There are water birds to be seen and seats at intervals. At one point the ruins of the Castle can be seen (but not visited).

Lovely stroll along what had been the moat. Birds, vegetation, babbling water. Unfortunately, we did spy some trash that found its way into the water.
