Mary’s Walk in Peterswell

Hi all,

A few years ago, I took part in a charity walk called “ Run for Mary” in Peterswell. As it happens, I live in Peterswell, but had never really explored that side of Peterswell( the actual village). It was an amazing walk and as the charity walk is coming up soon( click here for more info) I thought I’d walk it again, without the crowds.  I have called the walk Mary’s walk, in memory of Mary.

The walk is  just under 6 Kms, and it took me 1 hour and 10 minutes to walk it. Regardless of the time of year, wear a high Viz Jacket. Bring some snacks/drinks in case you get hungry or thirsty. And yes, it’s a looped walk!

Join my Facebook Group Gort Cycling Trails and let me know if you cycled or walked any of the trails, what you thought about them, and if there are other cycle trails that should be mapped in the #burrenlowlands 

For a full list of #SafeCycleTrails  and maps I have mapped so far, click here

So where is this walk?

Make your way to Peterswell, off the main road between Loughrea and Gort.

Here is a little map of the walk. ( If you are Runtastic User, click here

Park your car at the Community Center and walk toward the church.

One you are the church, look back to get a view over Peterswell.

This is a country road, so just be mindful of traffic.

As your walk progresses, you’ll pass many fields, and enjoy views over the countryside.


Keep walking, the road veers to the left , don’t take the road over the bridge.

At this point you are in a very rural location! I loved the view with all the leaves on the ground.

The road comes to an end, take the left turn. As you walk on that road, it’s a bit hilly, you’ll  see hedgerows on the left.

There is a beautiful view from the top of the hill:)


Keep walking till you come to the end of the road. Take a right, as you are now back on the road that leads you to Peterswell.

Hope to see you at the Charity event in memory Of Mary which takes place on the 10th of November. Follow the Run for Mary Facebook Page here.

Greetings from Peterswell,


Share and Enjoy !
