If you’re coming to Dublin from Leinster you don’t need to hit the M50 for a family fun day out — 10 minutes before the Red Cow Roundabout, why not consider Corkagh Park?
Corkagh is a gateway to the Camac Greenway which leads to Clondalkin Village and the Round Tower.
Corkagh Park is located near the Naas Road stretching towards Clondalkin. Opened to the public in 1986, it consists of 120 hectares and was formerly part of Corkagh Demesne. Corkagh Park has its origins in a manor house and its estate and includes the old Corkagh Demense and land on both sides of the Camac River.
Home to Ireland’s only purpose-built cycle track, which provides a safe, traffic-free environment in which to learn skills, improve fitness, train and race.

Please note that for operational reasons, the car parks are closed in sequence. Some car parks therefore close in advance of the official closing time. Where the closing time varies from the official closing time, the earlier time is prominently displayed at the entrance to the car park.
Currently there are four car parks in Corkagh Park. An upgrade of the existing car park adjacent to the fishing ponds (accessed from the outer ring road on the western side) is planned and will proceed in 2016. The existing car park is surfaced in hard-core gravel only. The plans include resurfacing the existing entrance and car park and upgrading the landscape treatment along the edges. The car park will be extended by 20 spaces to allow for disabled parking spaces.
