Clonbur/Cong Trail

Trail description

This linear trail takes you through Clonbur wood with a wide variety of both native and exotic tree species.  The trail goes under county roads via two underpasses  in Cong wood.  Along the way you will enter pigeon hole wood and see pigeon hole cave/sink. This part of the trail passes along the Cong nature trail to Cong village. The old specimen trees you see were planted by Lord Ardilaun over a hundred years ago.  At the end of the trail at Cong village you can  refer to the trail signage to see looped walks from there.  Cong and Ashford grounds are well known as the location for the film "The Quiet Man".
