The Octagon framing the view over the Glen of the Downs Nature Reserve 💚
The Reserve is home to the finest example of oak wood of it’s type close to Dublin. It is largely Sessile Oak with an understorey of Holly and a dense carpet of Woodrush, Bilberry and Heather.
The woods abound in bird-life and 21 breeding species have been recorded here. Each bird species occupies a distinct niche in the woodland having different feeding and nesting habits.
There are forest walks, suitable for all the family, or a more challenging climb will bring you higher up where views of the Wicklow Mountains and Irish Sea can be enjoyed!
