Walking, Hiking & Cycling
The landscape around BrookLodge & Macreddin Village is surrounded by rolling hills and beautiful vistas. As such, it’s natural walking countryside and if you wish to stretch your legs, we can advise on the best routes depending on your available time and energy levels. We can also prepare a Macreddin Village backpack (€15 per person) filled with goodies to keep energy levels topped up.
Want to set out on two wheels? Just ask the front desk to equip you with bikes and helmets.
