Recently zipit zipline park has added a course to farran wood. We used to go there before this and while it was nice enough from a nature point of view, it was underused. We visited a couple of times this summer and the zipit course has added so much energy to the wood. It's clearly very popular even though it's... More

Great family day out. Super place to walk and ride your bicycles. Take a picnic and €5 in coins for parking. Zipit forest adventures opened in March 2015 which is fantastic and located at the park! My kids 9 and 13 thoroughly enjoyed the zip wires and climbing through the trees at Farran Forest Park. Will definitely go back again!

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

There is not much sight seeing on this route, although it is nice for something to do, like go for a picnic? 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
