Local Attractions - Forest Parks

Killykeen Forest Park

Enjoy the great outdoors at Killykeen Forest Park, located just 6km from Thornton Cottages on the road to Killeshandra Town.  Killykeen surrounds the lake and islands of Lough Oughter. Scattered throughout the park are early fortifications such as Crannogs or lake dwellings. The woodland has great diversity of trees with oak, ash, birch, beech, sycamore and alder in abundance.
The park is a haven for bird life such as heron, coot, cormorant, moorhen, kingfisher, mallard, wagtail warbler and the great crested grebe.

Florence Court Forest Park

The Forest Park is located eight miles from Enniskillen off the A32 Swanlinbar Road. Situated on the north east shoulder of Cuilcagh mountain the forest covers an area of 1,200 hectares. The park offers widely contrasting habitats, from open mountain and blanket bog to coniferous forest and the old estate woodland, which features many mature oaks, some planted around 200 years ago.
Florence Court Forest Park adjoins the National Trust property and Florence Court House. The colour-coded forest trails run through both properties.
Florence Court is one of three forests across Northern Ireland piloting the "in-touch" information kiosk. The kiosk contains lots of information on the forest and its surrounding area including useful tourist information.

Thornton Cottages provide self catering holiday cottage accommodation in Cavan, near to Belturbet.
