Fabulous looped-walk around the peninsula. There are a number of ruins and beside each an information panel and reconstruction drawings.

For a free activity you cannot go wrong. Out in one of the most remote locations lies the old ruins of rindoon. There's history and beauty all rolled into one. It's stunning. A must do!

I returned to this walk with my young family having had a lovely time there 5 years ago. This time I was so disappointed. Whether due to neglect or lack of funds we discovered that the well marked trail was no more. Most of the...More

The Warren Loop walk is a great attraction, situated in south Roscommon, half way between Athlone and Roscommon town. The site of the Medieval town of Rindoon, the castle, church and wall are still extant, as are the hospital and a later windmill ruin. Rindoon...More
