Background to Place
Ballintubber Rambling Loop begins at a castle in the centre of the village of Ballintubber in County Roscommon which is in the west of Ireland, and it is a fantastic way to explore the beauty and tranquillity of the Roscommon countryside. The trail follows an old mass path through scenic low lying farmland and was used by residents in times past as a shortcut into the village. Willsgrove Rambling House is one of the beautiful attractions on the loop (pictured below), this building was restored by the local community and it is where many traditional music sessions take place
