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

Spent a very enjoyable 90 minutes walking through these beautiful wood and lake. You can spend much less or much more walking the various trails which are extremely well signposted. They are also marked in respect of their difficulty, but none are too taxing.

wonderful forest walks - the paths are so well thought out and laid out for walkers who dont want to get mucky! We followed a couple of the trails, and were blown away by the beauty of the place and the smell of the forest air following the couple of showers earlier that morning. A good place for the soul,...

Beautiful native forests outside Glengarriff woods. A choice of walks to explore. There are a number of picnic spots in scenic locations which make this a great place to stop the car and go for a picnic.

We chose to do the walk through the woods up to Lady Bantry's viewpoint. This is an old oak woodland, which is allowed to be in its natural state. It is a lovely forest, including holly trees, moss and ferns. The wide gravel trail is easy to follow. Steep steps take you up the final stretch to Lady Bantry's viewpoint,... More

We recently visited Glengarriff national park with the kids and was very enjoyable. There is great walkways put down which made it easier for my mother in law in her 60s to walk on . The scenery is beautiful and is a great way to spend an afternoon if the weather stays nice. There are picnic facilities also if you... More

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!
