Ballysaggart, Seemochuda Loop

Category: Country Walks
Difficulty: Moderate
To reach your starting point, drive through Araglin and cross the Kingston Bridge, then follow the road toward Lismore.

After crossing Glouncaol Bridge (the only bridge on this road before you reach Ballysaggart), bear left and, after approximately 1km, park (safely) at the junction on your right. Proceed along the road you had been driving on.

Follow this road, keeping left at all junctions. You will pass Seemochuda on your right.

The road you are on is a meandering country road, known locally as the Bog Road, with views of the Knockmealdowns, Doon and the Araglin River Glen.

Follow the road around. It loops back via the main road. When you arrive at Glouncaol Bridge, turn left again and return to your car.
