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

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

There is a small playground but is for the bigger children. Nice seeing the animals so close but i don't think it should cost 5 €. The area is really nice. As tourist we found it a bit difficult to find (not many signs). There is toilets.

It's a 20 minute drive from Cork city. A lovely place to take the kids and a picnic. There's a playground that's great for older kids but not so much the smallies. Nice to see the deer.
