Suir Blueway – Cycleway
Route: Clonmel to Carrick on Suir
Distance: 21km (Cycleway)
Cycling is the perfect way to explore the river trails, towns and spectacular countryside along Suir Blueway Tipperary. Bring the family for a gentle pedal by the river. There is a 21km marked cycle route along the river towpath from Clonmel to Carrick-on-Suir which is ideal for leisure cyclists of all abilities. The route is divided into four stages so you can decide on the distance yourself.
North Tipperary Cycle Network with the town of Nenagh as its hub offers three routes varying in distance from 11km to 67km with numerous shorter alternatives.
Each cycle offers pleasant views of the local countryside while loops 1 and 2 provide stunning lakeshore panoramas. Numerous picnic stops are dotted along the route as well as a number of award winning pubs and restaurants.
Loop 1: 65km
This loop takes the cyclist along the eastern shores of Lough Derg and through lakeside villages of Dromineer and Terryglass. Shorter journeys 1a(11km), 1b(28km) and 1c(46km) which are sign posted may be taken along this loop.
Loop 2: 30km
This is the shortest of the three loops, and allow access to some of the more spectacular views of the lake before descending into Castlelough and on through a working farm, along a slight off-road section (suitable for all bike types) to Garrykennedy.
Loop 3: 67km
Loop three is a relatively flat cycle visiting Cloughjordan, home of Ireland’s first eco village returning to Nenagh along quiet inland roads. A shorter journey 3a(46km) may be taken along this loop.
