The Coillte estate encompasses 7% of the land cover of Ireland and provides a stunning variety of locations with diverse woodland settings and properties with features such as open space, water and old buildings. Coillte has numerous properties in County Galway including:

Cong Woodland

Located in Cong Village and close to Ashford Castle, this is a very interesting site which combines scenic walks and historic buildings with forest and water. The property features trees over 140 years old as well as caves and stone viaducts.

Ard Na Gaoithe

This is a pleasant location on the shores of Lough Corrib, with its many beautiful islands. This was a favourite amenity site which was first made famous by the Guinness family, who lived in nearby Ashford Castle up to 1939. Ard na Gaoithe has a rich cover of Coniferous/broadleaf mixture, including Larches, Norway Spruce, Douglas Fir, Oak and Spanish chestnut. The late spring brings the rhododendrons into full bloom also bilberry, bog myrtle, mini bamboo and laurel.

Clonbur

The lands at Clonbur were formally part of the Ashford Estate which were owned by the Guinness family until 1939. The remains of Ballykine castle are hidden among the beeches. There are remains of an old De Burgo fortification which formally stood near the lakes edge but is now standing inland as a result of drainage. The main looped walk provides a panoramic view of the lake and its Islands. The main tree species that you will see include Sitka spruce, Norway spruce, Scots pine Ash, Beech, Yew, Birch, Oak.

Portumna

Portumna Forest Park is situated on the northern side of Lough Derg and features include lakeshore, old buildings, cultural features, trails and mixed woodland.

Derroura

Derroura Mountain Bike Trail Network, over 16 kms in length, lies at the gateway to Connemara. Derroura offers views over some of the most spectacular scenery in Connemara.

Coillte properties in County Galway have recently been used as locations for features including The Hallow, Pilgrimage and Pursuit as well as the Television Drama Reign.
