Liskennett wood lies on a low hill that is part of the same range as nearby Knockfeerina (288m) and is set in rich agricultural countryside. The highest point of this forest property reaches 216m and is 105 hectares (259 acres) in size. It is largely a working forest carrying species including Sitka spruce, Douglas fir, Larch with groups of Oak and birch interspersed. It is served by a good network of forest roads that are enjoyed by walkers of all ages from the surrounding hinterland. There is a lot of archaeology on site including a holy well, ringfort, rath & enclosure, indeed there is a lot of archaeology in the wider area. Views of Croom, Limerick City, the Shannon and the Ballyhouras are all possible on a fine day.
Well worth a visit!

Just 8km from Croom and 7km from Ballingarry and approximately 7 minutes drive from the N20.
