Directions

Abbeyleix Bog (or Killamuck Bog) is located on the southern edge of Abbeyleix town. The entrance to the bog is located
immediately south of the Abbeyleix Manor Hotel. The Manor Hotel is the last building on the left as you leave Abbeyleix Town on the N8 heading in the Cork direction. There is ample parking around the hotel carpark.
Leave the carpark through the gap in the beech hedge, turn left and and you will see an interpretative board marking the entrance to the bog. (There is also a "Killamuck Bog" sign)
The bog is divided in two by the old railway line (Portlaoise - Kilkenny) which runs north to south. The old line is raised above the level of the general bog site and provides a good dry walking route. The line is rutted in places but is just about good enough to push a buggy. We hope to be able to provide a high quality walking route which will be fully wheelchair accessible in the future
