Forth Mountain

Features

Forth Mountain is a disused quartzite quarry near Wexford town.

The former quarry has been reclaimed by nature and is now a beautiful and scenic area that offers a lot of options for filmmakers. The location has many exposed cliff faces and rocky outcrops. The stone of the former quarry is partly composed of quartzite and other minerals, so these exposed rocks have a striking and exotic look. The main landmark of the quarry is the man-made lake at its centre. The lake gives the quarry a visual identity and is particularly beautiful. A rocky outcrop overlooks the lake and gives the location its name. The outcrop gives great views of the former quarry and the surrounding area. The location also has a fairly large pine forest. The forest is unusual for the area and the pine trees make the location feel even more exotic.

Ongoing work by the County Council is adding walking trails and other amenities to the location.
