Arigna Miners Bike Trail

Arigna Miners Bike Trail

from 30.00

We recommend this cycle to be taken on an electric bike to take the effort out of the steep climbs on this trail.  There are many historical places of interest along the way including a holy well,  megalithic tombs, sweat house and much more. Experience two strikingly different, breathtaking views as you climb over Kilronan Mountain with Lough Meelagh and Kilronan Castle on one side and the magnificent Lough Allen and Sliabh An Iarainn on the other side. This trail then takes you to Arigna Village, formally a thriving coal mining village, with the last of the Mines closing in 1991 ).
Take a tour of the mines at Arigna Mining Experience to discover and experience the fascinating life of a Coal Miner (payable locally) or just browse in the Souvenir Shop or avail of refreshments in the Cafe. Its downhill all the way to Bellantra Bridge to see the majestic River Shannon flow out of Lough Allen. Cycle back to base along the Lough Allen Canal for a really peaceful trip by the waters edge.
