The Monaghan Way is a long-distance trail in County Monaghan. It is 40 miles long and begins in Monaghan Town and ends in Inniskeen. It is typically completed in three days.[1]

The route is designated as a 'National Waymarked Trail' by the National Trails Office and is managed by Monaghan County Council and the Monaghan Way Committee.

The trail begins in Monaghan Town and travels east towards Castleblayney, by way of Castleshane and Clontibret.[2] From Castleblayney the route passes Lough Muckno and Lough Ross before following the alignment of a disused railway line along the River Fane to reach the end at Iniskeen.[1]
