Mountain Biking

Ballyhoura Mountain Bike Trail Network is the largest trail network of its kind in Ireland and provides many options for off-road cycling in the mountains. Located on the Cork/Limerick borders, it is only a half hours drive from Longueville House. Forest road climbs lead you into tight twisty single-track with loads of ups and downs, tight turns and technical rocky bits.

The trails range from a moderate 6 kilometre Greenwood loop to the demanding Castlepook loop, over 50 kilometres in length! The trails are laid out in as ‘stacked loops’ - this means that each loop leads onto the next and rejoins it on the way back.

The loops are way marked in one direction – just pick the colour of the loop. Read the detailed trail information signs at the trail head to pick the one most suitable for you. Tough forest road climbs are rewarded with swoopy, fast descents guaranteed to leave you smiling!

Guests may bring their own mountain bikes or rent bikes from the Trailriders shop in Ardpatrick.
