Kilmashogue offers up to 10 km of mountain and forest walks with some spectacular views of Dublin City. A very pleasant walk through the plantation of conifers starts in the car park and heads up the Kilmashogue Mountain with lots of view points with magnificent panoramas of Dublin Bay and the surrounding countryside.
The origin of the name of the mountain could be “coill na fumsaoige”, which means “the wood of the ash”; or “coill na fuiseoige”, which means “the wood of the lark”.
Close to the car park, there is a bronze age megalithic tomb. Kilmashogue forest also offers an easy access to the Three Rock Mountain, Tiknock Forest and Tibradden Mountain.
