Six of Limerick’s most popular routes are highlighted in the guide. They are, the city centre to University of Limerick riverbank route,  the Neil Cusack Olympic Trail at Condell Road, the Three Bridges walk, city centre to Shannon Fields, city centre Slí na Sláinte and Castletroy Slí na Sláinte

The routes are shown on specially produced maps with all the main landmarks highlighted, so walkers know they are on the right track.

There are looped routes and exercise stations in many of the council-run parks listed in the new guide, such as Mungret Park, the People’s Park, Castletroy Park, Shelbourne Park and O’Brien Park on Clare Street.

And for those who are looking for something a little longer and more challenging, the guide has details of 16 trails across County Limerick, from the Knights Walk in Glin to the Knockfierna walking trail, the Great Southern Greenway Limerick to the Ballyhoura Way.For a comprehensive guide, search ‘walking’ on Limerick.ie
