Fly from tree to tree
Get a bird’s eye view of the majestic Ashford Castle woods as you zip through the branches on this exhilarating aerial adventure. Beech, Oak, Monterey Pines, Scots Pine and European Fir Trees will whizz past as you go from one platform to the next and cover a combined total distance of 300 metres. It’s a magnificent way to hang out in the tree tops - one of which, nicknamed 'Monty' is a 110 year old Monterey Pine with an eight inch think bark so pins don't damage the trunk, and standing at an incredible 50 metres or 164 feet in height - which is 10 metres taller than the flagpole at the top of the castle! The course takes approximately an hour to an hour and a half, depending on how speedy you are, how busy we are and who you’ve got in your group.
