Currabinny Wood is located on a prominent hill on a peninsula overlooking Cork Harbour. The hillock slopes down to the sea on three sides. Legend has it that it's name commemorates a giant, Binne, whose burial chamber surmounts the hill ('Corra') to this day. This "Giant's grave" and an octagonal gazebo tea house are just two of the distinctive features on offer in this wood.

Further woodland trivia and directions are available at the link below.




Start anytime from 5pm to 6:45pm.



The wood is always popular with the locals in the area and the car park isn't huge so parking can be tight. We would encourage you to car pool if you can. When parking please adhere to the directions of our parking marshals and park on the left side of the road. Please don't block the entrance to the one house on the way in and give some consideration for others who may wish to enter/exit the wood while you are on your run.



In previous years the midge population made their presence known in Currabinny Wood. So if you have insect repellent it would be advisable to throw it into the car just in case they are back again this year.


Hope you can join us.
