Glengarra Wood, County Tipperary
Nature, woodlands, wildlife and walking - Find all this and more at Glengarra Wood. This mixed woodland s situated just 13km (8 mi) west of Cahir town in County Tipperary. Situated on Old Red Sandstone on the southern slopes of the Galtee Mountain, this park has been beautifully developed and is definitely well worth a visit. There are many fine specimens of trees including the giant California Redwood, which were planted during the time when the area was part of the Lismore estate. Early summer visits are particularly notable for the fine displays made by the rhododendron flowers.
On site, you’ll find two way-marked trails. A 2 km (1.2 mi) loop walk, which starts at the car park. This trail takes you across the Burncourt River and through various different stands of trees, down a forest road and back to the car park again. The second trail - The Millennium Walk – is about 7 km (4.3 mi) and again commences at the top of the car park. Other facilities in the Glengarra include: car parking, 5km (3.1 mi) of pathways, picnic tables and information boards providing names of the different species as well as a plethora of other useful information.
