Free event. No booking required.

Join a National Parks & Wildlife Service guide on our popular bat walks. Watch as 100s of tiny pipistrelle bats emerge from their daytime roost in the National Park Information Office. Then join us on a nigh time stroll through the oak forest as we use bat detectors to listen to bats echolocating as they fly amongst the trees. We are running three walks over the summer. We have a slightly earlier family friendly talk and walk in August.

Duration: Allow between 1.5 to 2 hours.

Where: All walks will start and finish at the National Park Information Office, Upper Lake, Glendalough, A98R221.
