Magical Woodlands...

Come and explore the trails throughout our 25 hectares of mature woodlands. The woodlands date back to 1870 and were planted as part of the gardens of a Victorian estate. The trails are part of Wexford Walking Trails. They are bounded by the Owenavorragh River to the North, a canal and the dunes to the East and our centre to the South. There are 4 marked trails through the woods:

River Walk (Red Waymarking) - 40 minutes

Canal Walk (Green Waymarking) - 25 minutes

Top Walk (Blue Waymarking) - 35 minutes

High Cross (Brown Waymarking) - 30 minutes

Such a lovely quiet place for a walk. There are a couple of loops - shorter/ longer to choose from. It was so peaceful to walk with the sound of birds chirping and the different trees to view. Each loop has a different story. You come across the Ballinatray bridge, the canal, the High cross of Kilbride and the river. Please wear comfortable shoes suited to the wetland soil. There are trails created for walking but its not flat ground. It can get very mucky. I like how they had kept seats near the viewing points, which are good for taking amazing pictures. There are no restrooms at the entry of this walk, so be mindful of that. There are a few car spots at the entry to the woods. We started from Courtown woods Car Park 2. I saw a few people walking their dogs, so I guess it is dog friendly. The entry is free, you dont need to pay anything. Overall, a very nice place.

Great gym, friendly crowd. Nice little cafe, great pool for kids and families.

Great place to have a nice and calm walk with a dog. Gonzo has a ton of sticks everywhere and he loves sniffing the trees. 10/10 from his and our perspective:)

A beautiful, well maintained forest walk with a good range of mature trees and saplings. Today the bluebell and white garlic were in bloom. A magician spot

A beautiful piece of woodland, suitable for a leisurely Sunday stroll. Or you can take the rocky beach route. Either way - fully recommended.
