313 hectares of mixed woodlands, parkland and lakes around the shell of the 18th century Curraghchase House.

The Park covers 313 hectares of mixed woodlands, parkland and lakes around the shell of the 18th century Curragh Chase House. The area provides a rich habitat for a diverse range of animals and plants. There are several special areas of conservation in the park and Coillte is currently involved in restoring native woodlands to important sites in the park. There are a number of looped way marked trails in the park to suit all visitors. They vary from the multi-access Lake Walk (1.5km) and Arboretum Walk (1.1km) suitable for wheelchair users and buggies, to the longer Curragh and Glenisca Trails suitable for those looking for more demanding walking and cycling. Playground, Picnic Site and Public toilet available.

Visitors to the park can also enjoy the little Kiltulla Church nearby which is said to date from the 9th or 10th centuries. Northwest of Curragh Chase House is the ancient Killeen Church.
