Glengarriff woods are primarily an old oak forest, it's a fairly low key amenity but well worth a visit for a ramble. The walks are well laid out and maintained and there are a variety of different types of walks from the more challenging Esknamucky (worth the effort for the amazing views) to the gentler Meadow Walk. I would highly... More

A wonderful place for a picnic or a walk. A variety of walks is on offer - beautiful secluded pathways through the forest, alongside the river and through the woods. Your dogs will love it, and you will enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and mossy paths

West Cork and Kerry seem to have got the message. If you want the tourists, give them the infrastructure. A lot of work has clearly gone into Glengarriff Woods to make it interesting with well signed, diverse walks for all abilities and providing the possibility of extending your walk by linking colour coded paths together. Whether you want to stroll... More

Located on the edge of the town, on the way towards Kenmare, the Woods are well laid out with a central parking and picnicking area beside the river. There are several walks that are signed, timed and mapped to take; some to heights such as Lady Bantry's Lookout which highlight spectacular scenery on clear days. If you are an able... More

We took a hike here for about 8km with our 3 year old and the walk was just magnificent. The woods are beautiful and full of wild flower and butterflies and dragonflies which shows that the woods is in great health. We will definitely take another trip here when my wife's family come to visit from Italy and show them... More

Lovely quiet walks. We only had time to do the short river walk (1 km). But other longer ones were offered. We'll kept.

The walks around the woodlands are amazing and there is such space that it's almost being in a private woodland as you rarely bump into anyone, particularly if you take the hillier walks.
