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.

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.

Great day out..romantic walks …or family walks…whatever you like. The woods are situated along the shoreline, facing some small islands in the bay…like no other..whether looking down upon the water from a height of approx' 4/5mtrs or searching for crabs in the rock pools…it's all there along the walks..

The woods around Glengariff are beautiful and the trip to Barley lake was a highlight for me. Whatever you do, don't don't don't eat at the Hawthorn Bar in town - shocking, had food poisoning for days afterwards, really terrible, can't describe how bad it was. Lucky Glengariff is so beautiful, it saved an otherwise horrendous experience.
