I loved the walks through Cong Wood. There are a number to choose from as you walk to the trailhead behind Cong Abbey.
I didn't do them all but spent a lovely couple of hours happily exploring the wood which is run by Coillte, a state forester.
Really well laid out with coloured markers, so leave full and quiet. All are easy hikes, it just depends in the length of the ones you choose as to whether it is taxing or not. There's a display board by the bridge behind Cong Abbey that outlines them all. Fantastic place.

Fantastic walk through beautiful woodland, especially if you follow the green trail out to Clonbur Wood, then follow the white trail to White Island - so worth the long walk to see the carboniferous limestone and limestone pavements on Lough Mask. A separate trail is the red one on which you can see the Pigeon Hole Cave, Priests Cave, and also you can find the Guinness Tower.....77 steps to the top, but no view there because of the height of the trees. Look out for the red squirrels, wild strawberries & raspberries, all sorts of plants and trees. Leave yourself plenty of time to enjoy this treasure

We rented mountain bikes at the Ashford Lodge and took the magical trail from Cong to Clonbur. In the space of a few kilometers you travel through streams, ferny woods, rocky meadow, lake and forest. It's a wonderful way to spend half a day. Stop for the carvery lunch at Burke's Pub in Clonbur to refuel.

Excellent trail from Cong Abbey to Clonbur. Route clearly signposted. Possible to take a detour to White Island which in total was about 15km from Cong to Clonbur and back. Great facility.

Walking through here was mystical - the trail goes on and on and you just know you are in a special place.

We have been on this walk numerous times and it never fails to amaze me. We usually go in from Pigeon Hole wood and walk the full loop which is around 4k. The path takes you through the forest, under the road and past the Guiness tower, Cong, Ashford with lovely views and lots of things to explore.

Lovely natural variety of terrain and incline would be perfect if it was a loop, yet thoroughly enjoyable high vibes. Jonee :)

Great walk thru the trail in woods of Cong. Quiet and serene, go during the day for sure. No worries about any strange animals here. Pay attention to the trail signs or you may get lost a bit, but still can find your way back, just takes longer:)
If raining or recently rained, can be muddy, wear appropriate rain boots etc.

We stopped in the small town of Cong on our 10 day tour and it was a beautiful area.
We had watched The Quiet Man before visiting Ireland, and this is where it was filmed, with alot of references to the movie as you walk through the town. The scenery is gorgeous!
