This is a really nice run! It’s three loops – with the first being slightly longer than the last two – all on tarmac paths. It’s through shaded woodland and has a slight hill at the end of each loop. Numbers are small so although the path is narrow, passing generally isn’t a problem.
Facilities cafes and playgrounds:
There is a car park at the start but no toilets unfortunately. The nearest ones are at Aldi which is only a 5 min walk away. There is a big playground just at the entrance of The Demense so only a short walk from the parkrun with parking opposite as well, however there are more areas of The Demense worth exploring on bikes/scooter for the kids too. We didn’t get the chance to eat in Newcastle West but I have been told that Marguerite’s Bakery Cafe in the main town square is lovely with plenty of choice and plenty of seating.
A really enjoyable run! Although it’s a three lap course, it doesn’t feel it.
Whether you are on your own, have a group, a buggy or a dog! We really enjoy it & count ourselves lucky to have a parkrun in our town!
Tymon parkrun starts next to the car park on Limekiln Road in Dublin 12, about 5 minutes drive from the M50. It is a smallish, friendly and inclusive parkrun with numbers usually around 150 – 250 people of all ability levels.
Tymon is an inclusive parkrun and as well as small children in buggies, it welcomes bigger children and adults who need to be pushed around in jogging buggies and there are two available for families to try out on request.
Buggies can start where they see fit and as the field usually thins pretty quickly there are no issues during the two lap course which winds around the park on a tarmac path.
Facilities, cafes and playgrounds:
There are several large toilets by the car park and refreshments are provided afterwards by the volunteer team. And sometimes cake too!
For the kids, there is a playground (which you will pass on the run).
This is a lovely run that is inclusive and welcoming and there is always help for anyone who needs it.
