Knockma Hill

Family Friendly Outdoor Activity Toilets Parking
This walk is of easier character, making it a perfect one to do with your kids or your less experienced hiking friends. From the car park, the walk is a 4 km loop up and around the hill, with lovely views of the Turlough Lakes as well as a range of majestic trees like oak and ash. Reputation says that Maeve ‘the legendary Queen of Connacht’ was buried in the cairns on the summit of the hill, from where you’ll be able to get beautiful panoramic views of the surrounding area.
