Buggy-friendly parkrun Limerick – Newcastlewest

Newcastlewest

Tried and tested by Jess @the_buggy_runners_diary (IG)

Buggy friendly rating: 9.5/10

Scenery: 8/10

Course:

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.

Overall:

A really enjoyable run! Although it’s a three lap course, it doesn’t feel it.
