Sliabh Ban Walks, Strokestown

Slieve Ban Strokestown

The mountain of Sliabh Ban in Strokestown offers a lot to a walker looking for a new excursion in the Irish countryside.

There are three walks to choose from here and each is different to the next in terms of length and landscape.

What each one has in common is flora and fauna in the dense forestry of the area, which provides an ideal surrounding for a nature walk.

Those who reach the summit of Sliabh Ban will be treated to a spectacular view in every direction, taking in the four provinces of Ireland and 14 counties in total.
