A beautiful meandering walk through an established coniferous woodland. Along the way you will arrive at St Munna’s Bed which is a large flat rock that protrudes from the side of the valley. It is believed that St. Munna, who founded a monastery in Taghmon in about 597, rested here as a retreat during the summer months. Lying on this rock is reputed to help with back aches and pains which is something believers still do to this day.
Keep an eye out for trout in the nearby river. During the day, the sounds of birds singing fill the woods. Usually not visible in daylight, but also frequenting these woods are badgers, foxes, pine martins and squirrels. A wonderful woodland experience.
The Coffee Shop in Taghmon Village Square will be open on Sunday so please drop in for a cuppa and a treat!
