If you park at the hotel, there’s a number of ways to enter the woods. You can walk down the path that leads in front of the hotel entrance toward the cascades, where you’ll find a family of donkeys and a path that leads up to the cascades or one that leads along the side of the hotel. Follow the path to the right and it’ll bring you down river and onto a beautiful walk through the glen. When you come to the first little Bridge, don’t go over it, take a right and continue walking up through the magnificent forest. Even on a rainy day it’s magical! It’s well protected too, so if you’re in lahinch on a wet and windy day, a trio here is ideal to escape the Harsh Atlantic winds!
The path is buggy Friendly if you have good wheels. Not good for scooting etc. Small children need to be held on to as there’s no fence between paths and water/river etc.
