Trail Description

Beginning at the car park at Tower hill this looped walk takes you through the Portlaw woods. This walk is predominantly a woodland walk but does take in a short road section. Having reached the furthest point of the loop you turn back into the woods and pass the De La Poer Tower, built in 1785 by the first Marquis of Waterford, George De La Poer Beresford Earl of Tyrone, in memory of his son who died in a horse riding accident. The tower is a local landmark and stretches 70 feet high. Pass the tower and follow the woodland path back to the car park.
