Such a great spot, I took a stroll here with the dog during the week. So calm and full of nature. The trails are clean and clear and the sign posts are plentiful without over doing it. The water in the stream is so clear and my dog had a great time splashing about as its so accessible. Always have... More

Love this park, various walks/hikes of different grades and length something for everyone. A free timed 5k park run takes place on Saturday morning at 9.30, visited numerous times, highly recommend suitable for all the family however some of the trails are challenging.

We visited on a very nice and sunny day. The hikes were beautiful. There are waterfalls, rivers, and gorgeous views over the hills and bays. I strongly recommend. Some of the hikes are a bit challenging but there are stone steps and some railings too, so that makes it easier.

Really lovely setting with several trails to choose from. Well signposted. We saw a deer here yesterday - made my day.. Close to the town so you can walk here but there are several parking lots dotted around the place where trails begin and end.

We saw the sign for the walk in the village and its setting didn't disappoint - especially the fairly testing (for older people) walk up to Lady Bantry's Lookout which gave stunning views - but it wasn't easy to follow the signage if you weren't familiar with the area.

This is an excellent facility in west cork, and should be much more advertised. We do a fair amount of travelling and usually involve a ramble. This park is a brilliant introduction and is also a lovely short enough walk for experienced hikers. You can walk to the start point from glengariff itself ( we were staying at the Park... More

Glenzgariff Woods is a lovely quiet walk for short strolls or a nice long walk. My brother & I only had time for a short stroll but the woods are beautiful and the paths we were on were very well maintained. They would be good for the very young to the elderly. I look forward to going back and really... More
