The Kilmacthomas Slí na Sláinte is a 5.5km route starting at the old post office in the centre of the village and continuing uphill towards the soccer field, where you will pass the first Km mark. Continue downhill, noticing the picturesque Comeragh Mountains to the right, towards Dooceys Bohereen and on to the cross.
Turn left onto the main road and pass the Stradbally junction (where a recent archaeological dig revealed a bronze-age settlement) and continue for over two km passing Bonmahon Cross and turning left at the next t-junction. Walking back towards Kilmacthomas village (the birthplace of Hollywood legend Tyrone Power!), notice the old woollen mill on the left, started by Lady Waterford. Turn left at the junction and cross the historic bridge over the River Mahon, this will take you back to your starting point at the old post office.
