Fifth section of South Leinster Way

Starting from Inistioge and ending at Ballykenna, the fifth section of the South Leinster Way is an easy route that will not prove to be a problem for most walkers. Like the fourth section, this section is also located in County Kilkenny. The total distance walkers will have to cover on this walking trail amounts to about fourteen kilometres. The highest point on this route is about two hundred and fifty metres high so it shouldn’t be too difficult for most walkers. An average walker travelling at a normal pace can expect to complete this walking path in a little less than five hours. The Mount Aldo forest road on this track features some spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. One mile from Inistoige village, walkers can check out the ice house that is located parallel to the River Nore. The gardens located before Mount Alto Wood are worth visiting for their splendour and beauty. From Mount Alto, walkers can take in breathtaking views of the River Nore Valley and New Ross.
