The Slí begins at the Barrack Cross in Stradbally Village. On reading the mapsign, follow the directional signs up the hill where the Tramore coastline comes into view. On a clear day it is possible to see the Hook Head lighthouse from this point. Descend the hill to Ballyvooney Cove with views of Gull Island to your right. The route continues past the cove uphill, where you will be able to see the majestic Comeragh Mountains to your left. Keep going along this route to the junction of the coast road to Bonmahon, past the Littlewood Gardens where the route turns left. At the next junction take another left turn and you will pass Tobber Cill Eilbe and two Ogham Stones. Traditionally this Holy Well was thought to have curative properties on the Cunningham Farm. Continuing past the GAA centre and playing field you are now in view of the village once more. Descend the hill to bring you back to your start point where you can feel proud having completed the 4.6km.
