Loved visiting the donkey sanctuary and the donkeys are so well looked after. Bring a packed lunch and enjoy the surroundings. I had previously done courses with them.

Hi, it's 29km if you go through Mallow and turn left for Liscarroll at the Hospital. When you come into Liscarroll turn right and it's about 400 from the village centre.
