Tour de Bog


This is a circular tour from Roundstone usually done via Ballyconneely and taking the Bog Road back to Roundstone. It is a superb route of 20 miles/32km with a few little hills but giving a wide variety of views.

Because it goes around 360 degrees you can be assured of having the wind in your face at least part of the way. If the wind is from the north, then this would have the advantage of being behind you on the last few miles back into Roundstone, which is always a pleasure, but if it is from the prevailing south west that means you have it behind you going up towards Ballinaboy, and you would usually be a little bit more sheltered against a south west breeze coming in from Toombeola on the last few miles.

The winner in the annual Tour de Bog race could expect to take as little as two hours, but that is not allowing any time for some enjoyment along the way. On a fine day from an enjoyment point of view, it would probably be best to go anti clockwise, bringing your togs with you as this would give you the option of a swim either along the shore at Mannin Bay or in Gurteen and Dogs Bay.

Interesting side excursions can be taken at Ballyconneely out to Bunowen or Doonloughan, with lovely swimming opportunities all along the route.
