Forest walk

The Glen of Aherlow is the ideal location for the little adventurers in your life. Enjoy the outdoors and nature at its best, a walk in the Nature Park to see the birds and wildlife, pick flowers and have the freedom to run in a woodland setting.

Explore the ruins of Lenihan’s cottage, a small labourer’s dwelling, which dates back to famine times, or the restored stone bridge on the old Bianconi road. Read the many poems, the work of local writers, see the fairy houses dotted throughout the forest or just take the time to listen to the woodland sounds and bird songs.
