The East Clare Way is a 172km circular route that crosses the Slieve Bernagh Mountains before descending to the Clare lakeland areas around Tulla and Feakle. After circling Lough Graney, the route then climbs again over the rugged boglands of the Slieve Aughty Mountain back towards Lough Derg. The East Clare Way returns through the hills towards Scarriff and on to complete its circuit back to Killaloe. Clare Walks Ltd in Tulla, County Clare, manages and maintains the beautiful walking routes throughout the county.
The Mid Clare Way, called 'Slí na Méaracán' in Irish, is a 150km long circular walking route around the centre of County Clare in the west of Ireland. It encompasses the county capital, the busy and picturesque town of Ennis. The beauty of The Mid Clare Way lies within its extraordinary diversity and simple charm.
