WELCOME TO HIDDEN TRAILS

Hidden trails is based in the historic and picturesque town of Graiguenamanagh, nestled in the beautiful Barrow Valley. From the calm and tranquil walkways along the river barrow, to the stunning heights of Mount Leinster and the rolling walks around Brandon Hill. If you are looking to get away from it all , even for just a few hours, a visit here is a must.

We offer a variety of walks to suit all ages and abilities, taking in the scenery and sharing a few stories along the way. There is so much history and beauty here just waiting to be discovered. We also offer cycle tours or just hire a bike yourself and head off, or you might like to try out a bit of canoeing / kayaking on the river with its locks and rapids a plenty.

PADDY

My name is Paddy Lawlor. Having spent several years with a bag firmly strapped on my back wandering around Europe, to the Middle East, South East Asia, Australia and beyond, I decided on my return to Ireland to try keep up my wanderings. I returned to college to gain all the necessary qualifications, so I could take you with me.

I have a broad interest in the land and its stories, from the flora and fauna to folklore that surrounds us everywhere here in Ireland’s Ancient East.
