Approximately 2km outside Rathangan Village, the enchanting Killinthomas Wood has approximately 10km of signposted walks of all lengths. A great place to visit year-round, it is particularly magical in springtime when the bluebells are in bloom.
Killinthomas Wood is like something straight from a fairytale. This is truly a beautiful and relatively undiscovered area of Co Kildare. The 200-acre amenity area is a mixed hardwood conifer forest with very diverse flora and fauna. In spring/early summer, the woods are carpeted with bluebells and wild garlic.
There are about 10km of signposted walks in the wood, offering walkers options for both short and long walks all starting from and finishing in the carpark. There are picnic tables and benches dotted throughout so it is also a great place for families to visit.
