With 10km of signposted walks, this is one of the few yet to be discovered areas of outstanding natural beauty in Co Kildare. Coille Killinthomas has a mixed hardwood conifer forest with very diverse flora and fauna, and is a great place to visit. You can go for a short or a longer walk, the paths will always get you back to the carpark.

Dìreach gu tuath air a ’bhaile shoirbheachail ann am baile baile Bhailenafagh tha tobhtaichean dà eaglais. 'S e an tè as motha an t-seann eaglais RC ann am Bailenafagh a chaidh a thogail anns na 1830an agus a chaidh a chumail suas chun 20mh linn ach an uairsin chaidh a cleachdadh agus chaidh a toirt a-mach ann an 1985. Is e na tobhtaichean as lugha na tha air fhàgail den eaglais meadhan-aoiseil tùsail a tha na suidhe air toman aig oisean an Ear-dheas na h-eaglaise as motha. Tha an dà chuid ann an cuairteachadh le balla ceart-cheàrnach a tha iongantach mar eilean ann an achadh cruithneachd.

Lorg na tha air fhàgail de Caisteal Donadea agus gàrraidhean le ballachan a chaidh an toirt air ais le nàdar. Faic an eaglais agus an tùr a thog an teaghlach Aylmer agus an dachaigh air an robh daoine a ’fuireach gus an do chaochail am fear mu dheireadh den teaghlach ann an 1935. Bheir an Loidhne Aylmer 5km a dh’ fhaid thu thairis air sruthan agus tro choilltean dùthchasach leathann. Faic beatha na mara timcheall ort air cuairt timcheall an locha agus faic feòragan agus eòin anns na craobhan air slighe nàdair. Às deidh do choiseachd, gabh fois le deoch teth agus greim-bìdh blasta anns a ’chafaidh ann am pàirc na coille.
