Explore and enjoy stunning natural and built heritage within Benburb Valley Park through walks along the Blackwater River. The river has carved out a beautiful gorge through the countryside and is an ideal location for walking.

Route

Make your way to the front of the main Priory building, before heading downhill along the path towards Benburb Castle and the River Blackwater. A Bluebell Walk has recently been developed on site and this can be enjoyed if you bear right before reaching the Castle. Descend down to the River Blackwater, crossing the river using the charming white metal bridge. The River is popular with anglers and canoeists. Enjoy the network of paths on the southern side of the river before returning to make your way back up to the Priory Building.
