The maze was so much fun, it took us an hour to find our way out! We were laughing as we passed the same people trying to find the way. At the end you are rewarded with a slope up to a bridge to see the maze from above and can ring a bell to signal your triumph. I would... More

An amazingly beautiful place !!! For either a day out picnicking or just for a walk. We decided to try the mace after 2 hours we were going to need search and rescue lol. But we had a laugh trying to get out I highly recommend it .

In general a fantastic place for activities and fun for children but I recommend you bring your own lunch because I made the mistake of buying over priced food from the cafe which is under staffed has dirty cutlery and foul food and I'm paying for it today by spending much of my time in the bathroom so please stay...

Lovely place for family day out,only downside you have to pay £5 entrance fee if you want to park your car,but that's not to bad if you coming with small kids...There is a good bit of walking if you decide to leave your car at Castlewellan centre and go by feet....

Gorgeous summer day. Easy walk around the lake which is about 4km. There is maze which over looks the mournes moutains. Small Cafe and you can hire bikes and kayaks. Small entrance fee £5 and you keep your ticket can be used at other Forestry parks the same day.

Park is stunning lots of activities to do. Came with my daughter and nephew and they loved it extra nice as the sun was shinning and the park ranger we met (Frankie Toner ) was a pleasure to meet made the trip that little bit more enjoyable thank you 😀

Great day out, Fantastic trails in amazing setting. Seen a few red squirrels too. I'm not a major mountain biker but I thought this was a brilliant day out. We just stuck to the red trail and it was fine even if you haven't done any mountain biking before. We hired bike which was a little expensive at £20 per... More
