Forests for People
Coillte is Ireland’s largest provider of outdoor recreation with 260 recreational forests nationwide, including 3,000km of way marked walking trails, 12 forest parks and six mountain bike centres. Recreational maps are available at each site and can be downloaded here.
We have an open forest policy which means all walkers are free to visit any of our forests according to the Leave No Trace principles.
Coillte’s lands have been used by communities and businesses to develop and support local and community infrastructure from sports clubs to wind farms and other recreation facilities.
Coillte’s new forestry strategic vision aims to enable the creation of 1,200 direct and indirect new jobs in rural communities to support the just transition to a low carbon economy in Ireland.
