Wonderful woods & antiquities

I regularly walk these woods, wonderful and peaceful, good gravelled tracks, but short hill sections.

I used take the kids when they were small. Its reasonably near me, it's safe, it's free and it is soooooooooo beautiful. If like me, you love to be surrounded by nature, trees and the sound of birdsong-this is the place for you. I've recently rediscovered it and these days, i don't follow the paths but wander through the trees.... More

You can easily get lost in this beautiful forest at the back of the Dromoland estate. Nice combination of nature and history. Recommended!

We found this place by accident on our way to our hotel in Shannon. It´s totally unknown but brimful of history going back thousands of years. The homes are signposted and details given. It´s the site of the greatest gold find in Europe and well worth a visit for those with a passing interest in history.
