Knockranny Wood is located on the shore of Lough Meelagh, close to the village of Keadue. It is home to many of Ireland's native plant and animal species. It is mainly a conifer plantation comprising Sitka Spruce, Grand Fir and Scots Pine. However, look closely and you will discover a variety of deciduous tree species including Alder, Ash, Beech, Birch and Oak.
In the springtime the woodland comes to life as new growth unfolds. A rich ground layer of wildflowers such as bluebells, violets and primroses form. Please explore the Knockranny Wood loop by following the nature trail, and learn more about the plants and animals that inhabit this special place.
