Overview

Glenstal Wood is located at the western end of the Slieve Felim Mountains. The main species in the woodlands are Norway and Sitka Spruce, with pockets of mixed woodland dispersed throughout. The forested areas gradually give way to open ground on the higher elevations. There are many expansive views of the beautiful surrounding countryside on clear days, including landmark buildings in Limerick City such as Thomond Park.
The Wood is notable for its vibrant display of rhododendron in late Spring/early Summer. Many little streams rise in this area and feed into the Dooglasha River, a tributary of the Mulkear.

3.5km north east of Murroe village or 15km east of Limerick City.
