Belleek Woods

Distance: 14km

Time: Approx 20 minutes’ drive from Ceol na Mara guesthouse

Situated along the banks of the River Moy lies Belleek Woods, a 1,000 acres woodlands holding the title of one of the largest urban forests in Europe.

It is a peaceful haven of up to six miles of natural forest pathways, two of which are along the banks of the River Moy. Belleek Woods in Ballina is an area of great tranquility, peace and beauty, where you can enjoy the natural forest pathways running both through the forestry and along the River Moy.

There are two walks at Belleek. Trail One has 32 stops and runs for 2km. Trail Two has 12 stops and stretches over 1km in length. There is also a picnic area on site, as well as the historic Belleek Castle and museum, home of the Marshall Doran Collection. Guided tours are available. So too is afternoon tea at the castle, or if you’re staying for dinner don’t miss the flaming Drunken Bullock!
