Nice walk on Duntryleague
by hivisibility  13 Jan 2014
Duntryleague Hill is essentially a loop walk incorporating the Darby’s Bed loop near the village of Galbally, Co. Limerick. To access same take the Tipperary road leaving the impressive square in Galbally, a well kept village and always does well in the tidy towns competition. Leaving the village the road squeezes between the flank of Duntryleague on the left with spot height 194 on the right. At approx 796284 D the trail leaves the road left and takes a steep incline at the beginning. No place to park here but there are spaces some 200 metres approx back towards the village so care is required on the brief road section as it’s fairly busy.
The walk itself is pretty straightforward, just continue on the forest roadway which continues to incline upwards. There are nice views to be seen to the right as one progresses over the Golden Vale and then Slievereagh. Mostly forest to the left with little views. At one point the track gives you the choice of either going left of straight on, whichever way you go you’ll end up coming back the opposite way. Depending on which way you pick [ I prefer straight ahead ] , you will see a path branching either left/right depending on your direction. Short walk up to the summit from here.
There is a fine passage tomb to be seen and an unusual stone pillar [see pic]. Return back by the same route. A pleasant place for a nice family walk, not too taxing and if you're planning a trip to the Galtees you're not too far away from the Clydagh bridge car park so one might squeeze it in.
