Point of Interest
Brantry Wood is an ancient woodland site, this means that there has been trees on this site since it was first mapped in 1830 (1st Edition Ordnance Survey maps) and that this tree cover has been maintained until the present day.
The woodland plays host to a wide variety of wildlife. Keep an eye out for evidence of foxes, badgers and bats. Look up to the skies for a variety of birdlife such as Buzzards, Great tits, Blue tits and chaffinch. Down by the Lake you may see dragon flies, damsel fries and swans.
There is a huge variety of native trees on site, such as Holly, Hazel, Rowan, Alder, Oak and Birch
Just across the road is Brantry Lough, there is a circular walking path around the lough approx 2km.
