Five minute drive from the town. Great place for some very pleasant walks and hikes of varying lengths and difficulties, easy to moderate, and from 30 minutes to a couple of hours. Hiked up to Lady Bantry lookout with great views over the surrounding area. If you need to walk off the big breakfast, this will work!

As a nature lover there is nothing like walking in Irelands native oak forests-wish there were more woods like Glengarrif around the country - a peaceful place with amazing views

Well, I am local and one day I decided to take the time for the Reserve. I am disabled so the walking aspect is not for me sadly. Lovely trees etc but then I decided to explore a little further along the leafy lanes. Slowly.... came face to face with a trio of horses being walked at one stage and... More

This is a great place for a walk with the kids or if you have a dog or two. Lovely picnic area too. Would definitely recommend a visit. Even just to sit near the river is so relaxing. Love this place

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
