Visit us over the holidays and discover the joy of summer at Slieve Aughty Centre! With walks, games, the Enchanted Forest and more, it’s a perfect day out for making memories with family and friends.

Take a short walk to the Enchanted Forest and see if you can spot any fairy folk (don’t forget to look in the trees on the other side of the stream! There are plenty of animals around to visit, or you can go for a ride on one of our friendly horses or ponies (from €10 for pony rides to the Enchanted Forest for children ages 5 and up!).  With more than 2,000 acres of Coillte Forest beside the centre, longer walks are possible for the more adventurous. Tread quietly for the chance to spot some deer and red squirrels!

Step into The Three Towers Organic Kitchen for fresh, home-made fare, or simply grab a hot coffee or tea and sit outside in the garden.
