The Moyny Bridge Loop Walk is an easy and pleasant (4.5km) one and a half hour walk along banks of the Ilen River, with some lovely views on your return journey. Starting at the Drimoleague Railway Yard, you follow the blue arrow where you take the Quarry Road to a point where you descend into the Ilen River Gorge. Here you take in the history of Moyny bridge, cross two more footbridges and enjoy the wooded riverbank until the walk finally draws you upwards over the ridge and back to Drimoleague via the old Millards farm yard and the slate quarries.

You can download free of charge an MP3 audio file which contains a fifteen minute radio programme about the Moyny Bridge Walk, with local heritage, folklore and things to watch out for as you walk.
