Ardnamona wood nature reserve is a native oak woodland, approximately 456.6 hectares in size which lies approx. 5km north east of Donegal Town.

The main path runs through the site and just inside the gate a newly constructed path veers off to the right, this path joins the main path in the middle of the wood which will bring you back to the main entrance.

The entire walk is approximately 2km fro start to finish. Parts of the path may be wet from time to time and is very steep in places. Not suitable for pushchairs/wheelchairs.

The site contains alder, oak, ash, rowan and birch in the high canopy and holly hazel and willow in the understory.

Tips from locals

Keep an eye out for the elusive red squirrel, as there is a small population here.
