Two of Coillte’s recreation forests in Kerry had nearly 23,000 visitors between June and early August.

That’s a significant increase on the numbers that went to Glanteenassig near Castlegregory and Glanageenty in Ballymacelligott in April and May.

During March and April, when COVID-19 restrictions were at their most limiting, Coillte saw a large drop in visitor numbers as non-essential travel was restricted.

The agency is asking visitors to continue adhering to social distancing and other guidelines on outdoor gatherings.
