I have spent a lot of time thinking about the Camino in Spain and about the beauty in our own County that is not recognised for what it is.
So I have mapped my own Carlow Camino. It is intended as a pilgrimage route – it visits many important ecclesiastical sites and honours our local saints who travelled to Europe and established famous monasteries across the continent.
I have cycled all of it and it is very achievable for anyone. The maps are designed with walkers in mind in 8 stages; cyclists of course will cover them much faster.
A large portion of it is off road – I wanted to enjoy nature and travel on traffic free paths. The roads I have used are mostly very very minor roads and all pleasant to walk or cycle.
I hope people will try it out – I know I will be doing it on fine summer days!
