Broadford Ashford Walking Trails was set up by a voluntary committee based in the West Limerick villages of Broadford and Ashford. The original committee (formerly known as Mullaghareirk Walking Trails committee) was formed in 2000 to create a series of walking trails in the local area. A new committee was put in place in 2012 to further develop nationally accredited walking trails taking advantage of the natural beauty of the Mullaghareirk Mountains. The existing trails were revamped and new trails were developed and added to the trail list. The trails have something to offer the amateur and the advanced walker including some challenging climbs, a variety of terrain, and beautiful views of West Limerick, with points of interests along each route.
The Trails Committee has consulted with West Limerick Resources and the National Trails Office for advice as part of this project.In the last decade the trails have been used on a regular basis by local walking groups. We hope you will visit Broadford-Ashford to enjoy the trails and the majestic landscape of rolling hills and open farmland.
