Gougane Barra National Forest Park, Gougane Barra

(5/5 based on 220 reviews on the web)
Get in touch with nature at Gougane Barra National Forest Park, a stretch of forest filled with paths, alpine trees, wildlife, and a lake. An island in the lake holds a small monastery dating back to the 6th century, when priest Denis O'Mahoney erected it. Much later, a 19th-century oratory was added nearby. The forest is packed with 20 different species of trees, including Sitka spruce, Japanese larch, Scots pine, and lodgepole pine. Take in the natural beauty with a stroll and a picnic, or head to the on-site restaurant.
