O’Gorman’s Lane Loop Walking Trail Kilkenny

From the N77 Kilkenny City Ring Road, take the R700 at the Bennettsbridge Road Roundabout (signposted New Ross). After approx 8km you enter the pretty village of Bennettsbridge crossing a bridge over the River Nore. As the R700 swings sharp right – cross straight over onto the road to Gowran. The mapboard is attached to Tynan’s butcher shop at the bridge, car parking is available in the Primary School 100 metres through the village on the right hand side.
