Mullaghmeen Forest – Pinhole Obscura Reblog

Zero_Ektar_866Mullaghmeen forest is one of those wonderful places that is nearly impossible to find and even harder to describe. It sits in the middle of extensive farm lands at the Coole end of the Bog of Allen and borders counties Cavan and Westmeath. Its the largest planted beech forest in Ireland and that give the woods a very open feel. The light streams past the spindly tress to wash the forest floor with daylight. It give the woods an enchanted air and I can’t remember ever strolling through a place like it before.

As well as the woods there is a few little points of interested dotted around, including a Booley Hut and famine walls. We were just tipping into the Irish winter when I visited so I have have added it to my list for a spring/summer revisit.
