On the Kilmacthomas tour we cover a route of 5 kilometers in total distance. With 10 stops on the route it breaks it up and there are no steep inclines on the route, there is a gently decline from the top of the Viaduct Bridge leading down into the Public park in the village.

So far, since our launch in June 2022 I’ve had children aged 4yrs all the way up to adults aged 85 years complete this tour with no complaints about the route.

On the Dungarvan tour we cover a route of 2.5 kilometers in total distance. With 10 stops on the route it breaks it up and there are no steep inclines on the route.

If either of these modes of mobility are small wheeled then some small sections of the route may find getting through slightly difficult but I see no problems with the large wheeled mobilty modes other than possibilty of some leaves, twigs, dog foul on the route at certain times of the year.

In Dungarvan town, there are some sections with narrow pavements, uneven paving, cobbling and soft surfaces so caution will be advised in those areas.

The Maximum group number is set at 15 persons per tour experience.

The Minimum is for 1 person per tour experience.
