Welcome to Garvagh Forest, on the banks of the Agivey River.
Within the Canning family’s ancestral lands, the forest became part of Lord Garvagh’s Demesne when the barony was created in 1818. Following a Grand Tour of Egypt, the first Lord Garvagh, George Canning, built the striking pyramid structure sited at the entrance to the forest. Originally intended as his burial vault, George later had a change of heart and ordered the entrance of the pyramid to be sealed so the enigmatic structure remains unused.
Covering over 200 hectares, the forest is criss-crossed with many paths that are ideal for cycling, walking and simply absorbing the calming atmosphere. Time spent in the forest is rewarded with opportunities to spot the bird and wildlife that make their home amongst the many species of trees and other plants. In mid to late spring, the forest is transformed by a wonderful carpet of vivid bluebells.
The adjacent Agivey River is a popular spot with game and coarse anglers seeking salmon, sea trout, brown trout and pike.
