Glenone Riverside Walk

Glenone Riverside Walk, known locally as 'Fisherman's Walk', is a stretch of riverbank much enjoyed by people from all over the district and beyond.

Many people use the beautiful surroundings daily for walking and jogging. With a mixture of deciduous and evergreen forest allied with a safe and level gravel pathway alongside a tranquil river, a leisurely stroll or brisk walk here is an ideal way to relax and unwind.
Swans, ducks, cootes and cormorants are regularly seen. There are abundant iridescent Kingfishers flitting along the bank sides and diving for minnows. Otters are also seen at a certain spot known to the locals.


The walk commences at the car park just off the Ballymacombs Road and is approximately 2.5 km in length from the start to the end of the track and back.
