Glenshelane is a Coillte owned woodland that spans across two river glens. There is an extensive network of gently graded forest roads and trails within the area. Glenshelane is a mix of broadleaf and conifer woodland and we expect to see a wide range of woodland flora. There is also the potential to see Neottia nidus-avis (Bird's-nest Orchid) and Pinguicula grandiflora (Large-flowered Butterwort).

We envisage the trip to be suitable for botanists of all levels. There are some moderate inclines within the woodland but overall, the walk is not expected to be difficult. Please bring clothing and footwear suitable for all weather conditions, sun protection, a packed lunch and hand lens.

Meeting point will be at the Glenshelane car park at 11:00 am.
