This park is huge and has amazing views over belfast and Holywood. The history of the park is amazing and you can still see the reminance of the bear pit where the previous owner kept his (youve guessed it) bear. He used to make whiskey but was put out off business by prohibition as most of his customers were American

My husband and I recently visited friends living in Belfast in the Holywood area. Myself and my friend's husband are both keen runners so we decided to go on one of his local running routes. We went up to the top of Redburn Hill in Redburn Country Park. Although the run was tough, the views from the top were amazing.... More

At the beginning it's a steep climb to the top but it's worth it for the view. Great walk for dog owners (do remember to pick up the mess please) many places for them to get dirty. Apart from the steep start its an easy walk with points of interest dotted about. The only downside was a rather rude man... More

Redburn is a really nice location to walk or run up. The view is worth the climb and is really nice a dawn

Great outdoor space very close to the town centre...however walks are limited. There are two loops only, varying in difficulty. A lot of people walk their dogs, and not all pick up after them, so beware of the doggie land mines.

Great walks laid out on the side of the Craigantlet Hills, behind Holywood, looking over the shores of Belfast Lough and beyond. Great if your dog likes woodland to play in, and you don't mind some hills...ok, ok, a lot of hills. lol It can be quite steep in places, both with sloped pathways and steps, but on the bright...
