Portglenone Forest

The entrance to the forest and car park is signposted just south of Portglenone village and there is a good network of paths through the woodlands.

Portglenone Forest is famous for its wonderful carpets of bluebells in May. The groundflora also includes wood anemone, wild garlic, lords and ladies, broadleaved helleborine and bird’s-nest orchid. It is considered to be a long established woodland site, though there are no remaining very large girthed trees. The trees are mainly planted broadleaved species though there is some natural regeneration.
