Recreation Permits & Licences

Individuals can walk and hike on all Coillte lands, and cycle in selected sites, without the need for a permit.

However, for most other activities you will need a permit. This includes all walking and cycling groups and events with more than 30 participants and anyone guiding or leading another person/ group on Coillte lands.

All information on charges, insurance requirements and other details on the various activities are available on our partner website HAMS (Habitat Area Management System).

All licence customers will need to register with HAMS to submit licence requests, make online payments and manage their licences & associated documentation.
