This woodland was once part of the Ffrench estate. The family left it to the Irish Nation on the death of Miss Cathleen Ffrench. One of the main features in the forest is the Ffrench family Mausoleum which is as impressive today as when it was constructed in 1900.
The forest is well served by public roads, and a visit to the well preserved Ice-House is a must as one explores the coniferous areas, liberally interspersed with shady broadleaves.
