A very challenging route and a very well organised cycle challenge. I would definitely return again. Great fun, company, a hot cup of tea & sandwiches after were most welcomed. Great facilities at the Ballyhoura MTB trails. Thank you.

Did the White Trail on Saturday and it was really enjoyable. 35K with a little bit of everything...nothing really technical. Did the Brown Trail on Sunday and it was equally good. 18K. Red & Blue closed unfortunately...long... More

Wonderful way to spend the day! Great equipment, beautiful scenery, and the staff go above and beyond! Trails so nice, fun and easy to navigate, but very challenging as well.

You can hire one, from hard tail right up to a full suspension bike. These are incredible trails taking right up into the Ballyhoura mountain range with... More

Went here with some friends. The trails are great and the skills loops well worth doing. I though a bit much fire road but the single track was very well thought out and flowed perfectly Will definitely be back

Ballyhoura is an area for mountain biking, with a variety of trails of varying lengths and skills.
