Welcome to Ballycrystal forest, this is a peaceful countryside walk where the silence is generally only broken by the wind in the treetops or the trickle of the many mountain streams in the property.

The Ballycrystal Trail begins about 5km from Kiltealy village. From the village trailhead, drive out of the village towards Enniscorthy and follow the directional fingerpost signs to the start of the trail, up in the valley under Mt. Leinster, atop which sits the Radio Teilifís Éireann television transmitter.
