COVID-19 information
Updates on 10th MAy 2021 In line with the Government and HSE Covid-19 Guidelines and Procedures, Coillte’s forests and recreation sites are now open to visitors nationwide. We ask that all visitors abide by social distancing and public health guidelines at this time.
We continue to ask visitors, where possible, not to drive to their nearest forest in order to reduce the impact of traffic congestion near our sites. If a site is busy and parking is not available, please do not park in our neighbour's entrances or block access for emergency vehicles on narrow roads and return to the forest at another time.

Activities

Get out, explore and play – it’s all here!

Come and join us for a unique, exhilarating and fun-filled day out at one of our spectacular 260 recreation sites around Ireland. From remote, off-the-beaten-track treasures like Ards Forest Park in Donegal, to action-packed adventure spots like Lough Key Forest Park in Roscommon, we have somewhere to suit whatever outdoor activity you are looking for.

There is so much to do - walking, cycling, orienteering, camping, ziplining, nature watching, fishing, orienteering, horse-riding, boating and much, much more.


Events and updates

In heavy snow/ice conditions, we may have to close some car-parks and recreation sites, at short notice.

In a 'Red' Wind warning, you should not enter any forest area.

We will keep you updated on closures on our Events and Updates page.
