Clogrennan Wood offers the family a gentle walk on forest roads with magnificent views of Carlow town and the River Barrow. The area is an old woodland and has had forestry since the 1800’s. With Beech, Spruce, Larch and Oak with vegetation consistent with that of an old woodland, a great spectacle when the bluebells come out and the fresh smell of wild garlic.
