Comment
The Devil's Glen was once part of the Glanmore Estate, home of John Millington Synge. The woods are on the side of a deep gorge through which the Varty River flows from west to east towards Ashford village.These are old woods with a mixture of deciduous (beech, chestnut and ash) and coniferous trees. Wildlife includes squirrel, fox, badger, otter and Sika deer.

Devil's Glen hosts the permanent Sculpture in Woodland exhibition that has some interesting pieces of 'art' in the woodland space. The weather has not been kind to some of the exhibits.

Car Park: 30 spaces.
