We visited this amazing walk through the woods with our two dogs. It was so much fun and such a lovely place to walk. There is so many little tracks in the wood, it so peaceful and beautiful. I highly recommend a visit.

The area is really pretty. We did a walk through the park and followed the trail. There is a deer park with a lot of deer grazing and there are many areas to take great nature pictures.

This forest is ten minutes drive from Kilkenny. Loads of parking in a walled garden where families often bring picnics etc and have a bite to eat before or after a walk. The forest is simple and nature at its best. There are no tricks...More
