The track is well laid out with various difficulty routes. There are incredible scenic views of the Ballyhoura mountains from the top. Showers and parking are also available.

A very challenging route and a very well organised cycle challenge. I would definitely return again. Great fun, company, a hot cup of tea & sandwiches after were most welcomed. Great facilities at the Ballyhoura MTB trails. Thank you.

Excellent trails. Safe parking (€5). Showers & shop. Could do with a little cafe! Really sound lad running things while we were there. Did the White Trail on Saturday and it was really enjoyable. 35K with a little bit of everything...nothing really technical. Did the Brown Trail on Sunday and it was equally good. 18K. Red & Blue closed unfortunately...long... More
