Slieve Bloom Walks is based in the heart of the Irish country side in the village of Kinnitty. Slieve Bloom walking accommodation is a very welcoming family run accommodation which offers a very high standard of hospitality and comfort, rooms decorated with traditional furnishings and open turf fires to relax in front of when you return from your walks.
Dinners on walking days will be prepared from fresh seasonal local produce.
Lunches are picnics using traditional recipes, local cheeses and fruits of the season.
Slieve Bloom Walks also offer the use of a BBQ where you can provide your own dinner. We are dedicated to helping you get the most out of your holiday in Ireland and are always on hand to help you.

The gentle rolling hills of the SLIEVE BLOOM MOUNTAINS rise from the central plains of Ireland, forming a natural link between Counties Laois and Offaly. They are at the cross-roads of Ireland half-way between Galway and Dublin, Belfast and Cork, and Donegal and Rosslare. Their central location makes the Slieve Bloom area an ideal base for visitors wishing to make trips to other parts of Ireland. Alternatively, you can chose it as an interesting place to break your journey when en-route to other parts of Ireland.
The area is made up of forests, blanket bog of a type which is unique to Ireland, interspersed with hidden valleys of great character, and interest to the nature lover. It includes farmland bounded by hedgerows full of bird and plant life. The natural colours of the landscape are remarkable in any season. It is an extremely peaceful area which permits the opportunity to be close to nature. Much of the higher reaches of the mountains have been designated as an Environmentally Protected area for special preservation, as an amenity for generations to come. As a consequence, there are plenty of sign-posted walks, explanatory boards regarding wildlife and flora and fauna, and designated picnic areas.
