Bansha

Location

Bansha Woods are located approximately 5.8 km from Tipperary Town on the main N24 road to Cahir.

Site Description

This is a specially pleasant woodland that has an extensive forest road network which provides for some great walks.  Situated on the lower slopes of Slievenamuck, there are a wide variety of tree species present for the walker to enjoy including some impressive stands of Scot's pine and old woodland restoration sites which favour oak and other native species. 

One may wish to explore further into the forest and seek out Moore's Rock, a promontory that offers beautiful views of the Galty mountains and the rich farmland that lies at the base of the Glen of Aherlow.  For the more energetic walker, it is possible to walk to the Millennium Monument at the top of Cordangan or perhaps even follow the forest roads along the Slievenamuc ridge to Christ the King Statue.
