Fern Loop Walk, Castlemorris

We are so lucky to be next door to the Castle Morres estate in Kilkenny. For years now we have enjoyed walks through the woods on the old estate, now owned by Coillte, the state forestry agency.

Fern Loop Walks Castle morris Over the past couple of years, Coillte have improved the trails in Castlemorres and have even named and signposted the trails to make it easier for everyone to enjoy.

While we have provided guides to the walks in castlemorris in every cottage, Trail Kilkenny have also produced some very attractive guides and maps. We keep lots of copies here for our guests to use when they go to the woods for a walk.

The guides are also online on the Trail Kilkenny site, where they also publish very sophisticated Google map guides to the Fern Loop walks in Castle Morris. You can visit their site here.
