Tibradden Wood - Killakee *

Tibradden or Teach Bruadain (the house of Bruadain) lies between Cruagh and Kilmashogue mountains and is about 320m above sea level. It is in the midst of beautiful woods of Scots pine, Japanese larch, European larch, Sitka spruce, oak and beech. Examples of old pine woods planted in 1910 can still be seen. Heather, furze, gorse and bilberry grow in abundance and Sika deer, foxes and badgers are to be seen. There is also a good variety of bird life. The geology of the area is mainly granite and the southern slopes of the site are strewn with granite boulders. The site is of archaeological interest in that there is a cairn and kist burial site on the south side of the rocks which mark the highest point on Tibradeen. The site is a registered National Monument and a burial urn taken from it is housed in the National Museum in Dublin.


Located 16 kms approx south of Dublin City on the R116. Take the R116 Rathfarnham to Glencullen road for some 6kms south of Rathfarnham to the forest entrance marked Tibradden Pine Forest on the left hand side of the road. OR From the city centre, take the N81 south, direction Blessington. At Terenure continue straight on in the direction of Rathfarnham. The village is bypassed but continue on straight unitl you reach a right hand junction with a church on one side and Yellow House pub opposite. Turn right here onto Ballyboden road. Follow the R116 straight through the roundabout and after about 4 kilometres, you will meet a T-junction. At this point, the R116 turns sharp left heading for Glencullen. Follow the R116 and, very quickly after this turn, the entrance to Tibradden Forest will appear on your left. The parking at the forest entrance is extremely limited as it is only a layby.
