The Mid Clare Way

The Mid Clare Way is a long-distance trail in County Clare. It is a circular route 92 miles long that begins and ends in Newmarket-on-Fergus. It is typically completed in six days.[1]

The route is designated as a National Waymarked Trail by the National Trails Office and is managed by East & Mid Clare Way Limited and the Mid Clare Way Committee.

The trail was developed over a six-year period and opened on 31 May 1999.[2]

The trail makes a circuit of the countryside surrounding the town of Ennis, taking in the villages of Quin, Spancil Hill, Doon, Ruan, Connolly, Lissycasey and Clarecastle.[3] The trail connects with the East Clare Way at the townland of Gortnamearacaun.[3]
