I do a lot of my trees from there, its a good location, lots of good stuff to shoot. Plenty of parking too....
The abandoned bord na mona camp is still there, often with unusual animals - llamas the last time I was there - but there are big signs up saying no entry etc. I think someone has it rented and as a result doesn't want every tom dick and harry in there.
There are a few pubs in Rathangan, which I'm sure do food, especially on a Sunday. The forest is a mix of large conifers and broad leaves, mainly ash with good runs of clear forest floor and brush. The whole site is laid out with paths with overhanging trees. I have done a good few portraits in there, lovely overhead soft light coming down. There are a couple of bluebell locations, and at least one or 2 with a mix of bluebells and wildgarlic (white). Tough to get the colour balance right though sometimes!!
Searcher can try and find his lost lee filters!!!!
