Buggy-friendly walks Galway – Barna Woods


Barna Woods 4

Barna Woods, an enchanting forest located just off the main road to Barna, Galway. Blink and you will miss the gateway with only a handful of parking spaces however the woods can also be accessed through Cappagh Park.  This really is a hidden gem, with old native trees throughout.

Any forest in autumn is a sight to behold but Barna Woods is a very special spot indeed.  The path was quite slippy and mucky due to the rain so a sturdy buggy is required. You can read more details  here.
