Favour Royal Forest

Favour Royal Forest consists of predominantly coniferous forest blocks that lie close to the main Augher and Aughnacloy roads.


The Ulster Way passes through this forest. There are several other waymarked trails. There are two car parks for visitors to Favour Royal and Altadavin.

There is also a wild flower meadow and deer lawn, which can be accessed from the Favour Royal car park. Altadavin car park is beside St Patrick’s Chair, a gigantic Druid stone, and St Brigid’s Well which is credited with healing powers.

To arrange a special event or activity in this forest, such as sporting events or educational visits, contact the recreation manager at Enniskillen Forest Office.

There may be restrictions on access to parts of the forest from time to time due to forest operations so pay attention to safety signage.
