This indigenous forest and ancient woodland is named after the town’s located close to. The Glengarriff Reserve is just west of Bantry Bay (the bay can be seen from Lady Bantry’s Lookout, pictured below) and has a few different paths and walking trails that lead through different areas, moorland, meadow, bog and forest. Look out for sessile oak, birch, rowan and holly trees. Apparently there are also red squirrels and bats that live here but I haven’t seen them yet. There are plenty of birds though (like the dipper!).
