The Warren Way walk is a lovely short walking trail for little feet or a much needed quick walk to clear the head and run off the kids energy.
The walk is situated between Ballina and Enniscrone on the Quay road, we drove along the road and then typed in Warren Way and google maps brought us straight to it. There is a small car park off the road and it is sign posted.
The kids loved the walk as its all safely fenced off and the path is nice and wide. For toddlers I would advice staying near by as there is some gaps at the bottom of the fences where wildlife have borrowed under. There is lovely boards along the way to keep the children entertained, Little Red Head and Mini Miss brought along their binoculars and spent ages spotting birds and wildlife. The boards along the way give them the names of the animals and birds. When you come to the end of the path you come to a gate that brings you out onto the river bank (River Moy) if the tide is out you can walk out along the bank for a long while. Do this with caution as it is slippy and keep an eye on the tide as you could very easily get caught, if you aren’t familiar with the area I wouldn’t walk far.
Children’s bikes and scooters would work on this trail and buggy’s would be fine also, the path is nice and wide and graveled the entire way to the gate at the end.
We really enjoyed this walk and it is now a firm favorite of Little Red Head and Mini Miss.
The Break down
- Distance; 1.4 km
- Path the entire walk – gravel
- Type; woodland and river bank
- Walking boots/shoes advised, but runners would be good also
