Unique village near Athenry with its broad green area running through the village.
Enjoy forest walks, visit the mausoleum and the Monivea Castle.
The woodland was once part of the Ffrench estate. The family left it to the Irish Nation on the death of Miss Cathleen Ffrench. One of the main features in the forest is the Ffrench family Mausoleum.
