Comeraghs Cycle Loop Useful Info

You spend around half of your time on backroads and the other half on slightly busier regional roads. If traffic is a concern you should avoid the weekends and there is likely to be far less to contend with on the mountain roads in the Comeraghs.

Irish Rail runs 2/3 trains a day from Clonmel to Waterford City and Limerick Junction, from where you can connect to Limerick, Cork and Dublin.
