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.

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
