The Warren Way is a beautiful walk not to far from Enniscrone and Ballina.
The pathway was originally used to cart goods to boats which would moor nearby the shore. The path was also used by local farmers to bring their sheep to the shore to give them a wash when needed.
The Warren Way is primarily a woodland walk, but it also runs past open farmland, passes over a freshwater marsh and leads to estuary mudflats.
This varied habitat provides a perfect opportunity to admire the varied flora and fauna. The woodland part of the walk is dominated by ash, sycamore, alder and willow. Informative signs along the route explain the local fauna and flora in detail.
The freshwater marsh and estuary is the ideal location to admire the many birds who use the different tides as a feeding opportunity.
Note: do not wander onto the mudflats as these are unstable and can flood quickly.
