Slieve Bloom Mountain Biking

For an amazing mountain biking experience  check out the new Slieve Bloom Mountain Biking trails at Kinnitty and Baunreagh. You won’t be disappointed.

The Trails

The Slieve Bloom Mountain Bike trails are a new addition to the great outdoor experience in the Slieve Blooms. These trails are a network of purpose-built single track trails and forest roads that are designed for use by mountain bikes on waymarked circular routes.

There are two trailheads, one at Kinnitty which starts in the village and the other at Baunreagh. The routes are graded blue (moderate) and red (difficult/severe).

At present there are 90K of loop mountain biking trails completed in the Slieve Blooms, with more to come. A dedicated cycle path from the trail head at Kinnitty village has recently opened. The trails at Kinnitty range from blue trails and 2 more challenging red trails. These trails now link to the trails at Baunreagh over the top of Wolftrap mountain through vast swathes of beautiful forest and open land with fantastic views over Kinnitty Castle, Kinnitty village 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 breathless and smiling.

Ardmore Country House Kinnitty is the perfect place to stay in the village of Kinnitty which is one of the mountain biking trailheads in the Slieve Blooms and the centre for the annual Slieve Bloom Mountain Biking Festival. Facilities at Ardmore Country House  for bikers includes off road parking, secure lock up storage, bike wash facilities and drying room. Bike hire is available on the premises  at Slieve Bloom Mountain Bike Centre We are just across the road from the Slieve Bloom Bar where they make some great craft beers.
