Drive through the traffic lights in the centre of the town. Take the right hand turn in Clane at the Corner Pub (yellow building) onto the R403 to Prosperous and Allenwood. Drive through Allenwood. Less than half a mile outside Allenwood, take the left turn over the skew canal bridge onto the R414. If you miss this turn you will end up in Carbury. Drive for three miles. This brings you to the Bog of Allen Nature Centre on the right hand side of the road. If you get to Rathangan you have gone too far.
