The Ballyhoura Mountains straddle the borders of North Cork & South Limerick with views across the Golden Vale of the Munster heartlands. Known for its adventure, 96km of mountain bike trail stretches across the mountains. Trailriders, located at the trailhead hire bikes and equipment for visitors to take to the trails. Use of the Trails is free of charge and open all year round.
The Ballyhoura Mountain Bike Trails are also the largest trail network of its kind in Ireland and provides many options for off-road cycling in the mountains. Forest road climbs lead you into tight twisty singletrack 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 trail system, designed by one of the world leaders in the sport, is a challenging, one-way system constructed to give a challenging and rewarding ride.
