Golden Grove Forest
Reputed to be the site where the last act of cannibalism took place in Ireland, hence the name Cnoc na Meas or the Hill of the Banquet, this wood has more than 1km of forest walks meandering through mixed woodlands and undulating terrain to panoramic viewing points.
The main tree species in this wood are beech, Scot’s pine, ash and Norway spruce. There is also an abundance of animal and bird life here. The most striking aspect of the flora is the profusion of bluebells that carpet a large area of the woodland in the spring.
