The main feature of this wood is the Douglas River that flows down the wooded Glen through the property. It links up with the Araglin River closeby and the two tributaries feed into the mighty Blackwater that journeys forth to the sea at Youghal Bridge. This section of river is known for its populations of otter, salmon, Brown trout, Brook and River lamprey, all of which are important in terms of conservation status. Many local children have grown up paddling in river that runs beside the green in the main car park and picnic area in Glansheskin. It is a wonderful outdoor classroom and is enjoyed by all age groups.

Glansheskin is located on the outskirts of Kilworth village close to Fermoy town in Co. Cork
