Slieve Bloom Mountain Biking Trails Kinnitty .
The Slieve Bloom Mountain biking trails opened in April 2022. Kinnitty village is the trailhead for the Kinnitty trails and the route passes the door of Ardmore Country House B&B. In the centre of the village near the church you will find a map of the trails. There is also a coffee shop, parking, and toilets, bike repair shop and 2 bike rental shops. Bike rental is available from Slieve Bloom Mountain Bike Centre which is located at the rear of Ardmore Country House Kinnitty. Bikes must be pre booked. Biker friendly accommodation is available at Ardmore Country House Kinnitty with off road parking and secure lock up store, if you have your own bike.
There are now four routes to choose from at Kinnitty and over 40k of mpuntaon biking trails. A blue grade and two tougher red grade loops and recently a children’s loop which is just beyond the Kinnitty GAA pitch. To access the trails from Kinnitty follow the signed rout from the village through the GAA pitch until you reach the single track trails which start in the woods beyond Kinnitty Castle .
The trails take you through beautiful forest and open land with fantastic views over Kinnitty Castle and beyond. Forest road climbs lead you into tight twisty single track with loads of fast descents, ups and downs, tight turns and technical rocky bits, guaranteed to leave you smiling! The trails are waymarked in one direction, please follow the arrows.
Don’t worry if you do not have a bike. Bike hire is available at Slieve Bloom Mountain Biking Centre which operates from the courtyard at Ardmore Country House Kinnitty or if you don’t fancy too much effort you can hire an e bike rental just down the road at Bloom e-riders
