Blackwater River Walk

Starting at the Spire of Lloyd, Ireland’s only inland lighthouse, this walk is a pleasant ramble through farmland, past a ringfort and on along the banks of the Blackwater River, a Special Area of Conservation. The walk continues past the restored Victorian Waterworks before looping back to the historic landmark of the Spire of Lloyd.

And out again I curve and flow, to join the brimming river,
For men may come and men may go, but I go on forever. 
The Brook,  Alfred Tennyson
