Garryhinch

Location

Garryhinch, Co. Offaly

Site Description

Located in a typical woodland setting, this site is part of the old Warburton Estate.
The woodlands, mixed conifer and broadleaf, lie on both sides of the river Barrow. Norway spruce and Scot's pine are the main conifer species. The main broadleaf trees to be seen are beech, ash and oak.

Grasses, rushes and an abundance of wild flowers are also present including bluebells by the riverside.  In this pleasant woodland landscape, you may also observe fauna such as fallow deer, grey and red squirrels, rabbits and a broad variety of birdlife.

Beginning at the car park and proceeding over bridge on the River Barrow, this woodland provides a leisurely walk through the forest. Proceed around the outer loop road and return to the car park. A somewhat shorter route can be taken by taking the centre road as marked on map.
