Updated May 18th:
All our car-parks and recreation sites are re-opening this morning and those who live with 5kms of their nearest forest are welcome to visit.
We continue to ask all not to drive to their nearest forest where possible, to reduce the impact of traffic congestion near our sites.
If you are living outside the 5kms limit, you are asked not to visit until the travel restriction extends further in due course.
We recognise the increased demand for access to our sites at this time, so we will not be re-introducing car-parking fees until the commencement of Phase 2 of the Govt's Roadmap for Reopening.
- that all annual access cards will be extended by a period of 3 months.
- the car-park at Donadea Forest Park remains closed until June 8th, to allow a large harvesting operation to be completed.
Welcome to Ireland’s biggest outdoor playground. It boasts one million acres of lush forests, wild bogs, magical mountains, flowing rivers, and beautiful beaches - all waiting to be enjoyed and explored!
So get out and discover the fun of the forest!!
Just to note - All access to our forests is by permission. Individuals are welcome to walk in all forests and to cycle in designated forests. We can give you a permit for most other activities or if you want to hold group events. Keep an eye out for signs where we might be working in the forest - we will usually show you an alternate route for your walk or cycle.
We want you to have a great time exploring our forests, but we do expect you to look out for your own safety and respect other users of the forest.
Many precious memories have been made walking magical forests trails with family and friends. Today our forests offer far more than walking. You can whiz down challenging biking trails, canopy climb through trees and sneak unforgettable birds-eye views, camp under the starry sky, or explore the rich plant and animal life. Check out all our forests have to offer here – and pick something that suits you!
Come and join us for a unique, exhilarating and fun-filled day out at one of our spectacular 260 recreation sites around Ireland.
