Collin’s Bog Looped Walk


Abbeyleix Village
Republic of Ireland


A-B Starting from the hotel, follow the green and purple arrows across the main road (N77) with care and join a concrete pathway. The purple arrows are for the longer Killamuck Bog Loop. The concrete path takes you back to the edge of the village where you turn left and follow a road for 300 metres before veering left. After 100 metres cross the road and join a church avenue through metal gates. At the end of the avenue turn left onto a forestry roadway.

B-C. Continue to follow the green and purple arrows along the forestry roadway which takes you into an area called Collin’s Bog. After 2km you exit from the bog and join a surfaced roadway where you turn left. Shortly afterwards, you join the busy N77 again, turn right, but after 100 metres, cross the road with care and join a green laneway which takes you into Killamuck Bog. After 50 metres reach a T-junction where the Killamuck Bog Loop turns right, but you turn left.

C-A. Now follow the green arrows as the loop follows a bog path for 500m before joining an old railway line where you rejoin the Killamuck Bog Loop. Turn left here and follow the railway line to rejoin the N77 just 100m from the trailhead at the hotel.
