Very good place on a good day. Take your bikes and sunscreen, you will enjoy with children. Nice big lake to sit by and spend time. Some adventure activities on spot. A number of picnic tables also available. Just make sure you have 5 euros in coins for the entry barrier.

Great place to spend an afternoon. Great walks at the side of the River lee. Picnic benches available- so bring the picnic box. Small charge to enter but worth it. Rangers on site.

Farran woods is a great place for a family outing in good weather. There is great walking routes through the park but the highlight has to be feeding carrots to the deer. It can take a while for them to come over but when they do the will take the carrots from your hand through the fence. It is really... More

Farran woods have little play area for children. there is a river running along the walk way as well, some parts of the path has high amounts of gravel witch make it difficult for buggies but you can...

I visited Farran woods today with my wife and 6 year old. When I arrived I found that 5 euros is now being charged to access the car park at Farran woods. The gate is coin-operated and I could not access because I had a five euro note rather than the necessary coins. A member of staff present waved me... More

Nice park with a little playground, good walks and running trails. Kids love going there to look at the deer, try to catch the ducks and crawl in between the trees. Take a little old bread to feed the deer, always a great attraction.

This is a really great place. Lovely peaceful forest walks, a deer enclosure where you can get really close to some nice deer. ALong by the lake is a nice place to relax in the sunshine and there are some picnic areas and a small playground as well. Covers a huge area so also a great place to tire out... More
