The wood was formerly part of the Bryan Bellew Estate. Enjoy a walk around the Walled Garden Loop. Of particular note at Jenkinstown is a stand of beech trees with a magnificent carpet of bluebells in late Spring, also the Chinese necklace poplar tree which has survived from the original park planting of the 1870’s. Children of all ages can enjoy a deer enclosure next to the car park.
The Walled Garden Loop walk is enclosed with in the walls of the old estate, it starts at the mapboard in the carpark, exit through the Door in the Wall and turn left on the woodland path and follow the green arrow.
The wood has 2 looped walks for both a short stroll or a longer walk, both these trails are waymarked; The Walled Garden Loop (2.5kms, 1 hr, easy) is a nice short walk through the forest taking in St. Colman’s well and starting and finishing through “doors-in-the-walls”; The Jenkinstown Loop (4kms, 1 ½ hr, easy) loops around the perimeter of Jekinstown park wood and takes in a few viewing points on the west side of the wood to take in the countryside.
