We are the leading provider of outdoor recreation in Ireland with more than 3000 kilometres of trails, 260 recreation sites and 12 forest parks across the country.   We also have orienteering courses, aerial trails and tree-tops walks, set in some of the most stunning parts of the country.

Most of our facilities are open to the public free of charge.  There is a car-parking fee, which helps us to maintain picnic areas, trails and playgrounds, at some forest parks.

Some activities require a permit to get access to the forest.
