Walking
Cloonfad Scenic Walks provide a range of walking routes near the villages of Cloonfad and Dunmore. They consist of seven circular walks in a unique and stress free landscape. The Cloonfad area of west Roscommon epitomises much of rural Irish life. With a landscape that is at once rugged and tranquil and a network of time-honoured walking routes, this is about as far as you can get from the pressures of modern living.

Walking is not a new activity around here. Historical documents attest to a pre-Christian pathway that ran along the crest of Slieve Dart, a route that later became associated with St Patrick after he passed this way en route to Croagh Patrick in nearby County Mayo. What was good enough for saints also proved popular with giants, and mythology relates how the area became a favourite hunting ground for the Irish giant Finn MacCool.

Today reminders of the past are everywhere in the region - a wide range of monuments and artefacts bear witness to several millennia of human habitation. It's a quietly fascinating area and the perfect place to get a feel for the uncelebrated, everyday events that make up Irish life, past and present.

There is also a resource centre at the walks which is open as follows:
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday: 11am - 1.30pm
Thursday, Friday: 2pm - 4pm
Saturday: 11am - 3pm
This initiative was developed by Cloonfad Development Association which was formed to develop and enhance the village of Cloonfad and its surrounding areas.
