Walkers and Cyclists Welcome

Walkers Welcome

Not all land owners welcome recreation users onto their land. This can be for a variety of reasons, privacy, safety, conservation, protection of life stock or crops etc. However Coillte welcomes responsible users who practice Leave No Trace and allows permissive access for walkers to its estate of over 1,000,000 acres.

Much of  our forest lands are in Ireland's most beautiful locations and that makes Coillte Forests a great place to walk and hike. To assist you with knowing where access is allowed we are posting our "Walkers Welcome" signs at our forest entrances, so come on in when you see the sign.

You're welcome.

Cyclists Welcome

Increasingly cyclists wish to use our forests for cycling both mountain biking and family cycling. Coillte is building a network of cycle trails that will accommodate this increasing demand. While we welcome cycling in some forests we do not allow unlimited cycling primarily on health an safety - not only to cyclists but to other users.

As with hikers and walkers we are setting out to help cyclists identify where they are welcome and will be posting our "cyclist welcome" signs at sites that are designated for cycling. We welcome you to our forests and ask you to follow the Rules of the Trail and the Leave No Trace message.
