RE­FUEL WHERE WHAT

Old Mill Loop, Co Laois. This Coillte cir­cuit ex­tends up a wooded val­ley and on to a moun­tain ridge on the north­ern side of the Slieve Blooms. The first half of the trail traces the banks of the nascent River Bar­row, tak­ing you past the triple tiers of Clamp Hole Wa­ter­fall to an old wa­ter mill. You then climb above the for­est and fol­low a sec­tion of board­walk across open hill­side to a fine view­point along the Ridge of Ca­pard. The route is fully signed by red ar­rows, and par­tic­u­larly im­pres­sive af­ter win­ter rains have swollen the stream to a rush­ing tor­rent.
