Visited this woods late last year and I was amazed by the colours. The trees were shedding leaves and the range of colours was just beautiful. We walked for hours and had a picnic with a view that was stunning. The higher you go the better the views. Bring waterproof shoes or boots as it is never really dry

Great place no matter what the weather. There is a short river walk, a longer meadow walk. There are waterfalls, lookout points and endless paths. Great place to discover!

The woods around Glengariff are an excellent place for a walk, a tranquil setting amongst natures beauty. Its easy to leave your cares at the entrance/car-park once you enter this place.

We had a gret day out as part of heritage week. The children had plenty of activities in the woods. There were nature walks and talks. Games around the woods focusing on the plant life. We followed this with a relly inspiring walk with a view over the whole of the Bay.

It is to imagine fairy and mystical creatures dancing in the shadows and underbrush of the Woods. There several trails to choose with various levels of difficulty; all are well sign-posted. This is quintessential Ireland and worth a leisurely stroll or an invigorating hike--it is your choice.

A walk in the Glengariff Woods is like stepping into a fair tale. The place is beautiful. It smells wonderful and it's a nice relaxing stroll on a beautiful day, and on a rainy day - romantic!

Gem hidden off the main road. Worth a stroll through. Walk around trail and the water. Lovely and peaceful, beautiful spot
