Begin at the Lismore Heritage Centre and walk up Chapel Street. Go straight past the fire station and St. Carthage’s Church.
After 3km, you will pass through a crossroads and by the Holy Well at An Abha Bheag (a stream which feeds into the Blackwater).
The road continues up through the woods, via a series of hairpin bends under Ballysaggartbeghill on your left.
At the T junction, turn left past Ballinvella National School, then turn left at the Ballynaraha T junction.
Follow the scenic road back to Lismore, with Ballysaggartbeghill on your left again.
This walk presents some spectacular views of the Blackwater Valley, the Knockmealdowns, Lismore and the Vee Gap.
