Walked the fairy walk here at Slieve Gullion Forest Park. A fantastic FREE activity for families, couple or friends. The fairy walk appears rather new and gives kids plenty to do, combined with the extensive playground and walking trails this was a great afternoon out! Parking, cafe and coffee bar seemed good also.

Drove up to top car park which had been refurbished since our previous visit in May. Really impressed with the thought that had gone into making this public space more than just functional. Picnic tables lovely. We did a 3+ mile loop as it was too cloudy to go further up the mountain. We just followed the road and he... More

Can't believe this place is on our doorstep, but we've never visited before! Our 3 'tweens' really loved the park- a woodland style park on several levels, great for hide and seek and 'catch''. Plenty of covered cabin type things with seats for us long suffering adults to sit and observe the beautiful surroundings, and have a flask of coffee.... More

This is a review of climbing Slieve Gullion. You have to drive (or you could walk, if you have time) up the one-way system forest drive until you arrive at a car park at the top. (This was closed for refurbishment in August, but is due to reopen in September.) Opposite the car park there is a trail and steps... More

Visited in August 2015. I can seen at peak times there would be the need for further parking within the main public area but apart from that i was truly impressed and even the public bus goes from from right outside the courtyard to Newry. For Kids there is plenty to do with the adventure playground and fairy trail which... More

Visited here and whilst not the earliest, we got parked. Clearly sign posted. Had read about the parking, but as the kids were visiting the schools locally, we took a chance. Car park is small though. Had been raining!!!! Wellies are good idea if visiting the forest. With me was 2 10 year olds and an 18 mth old. Perhaps... More

I am lucky enough to live at the bottom of Slieve Gullion and have this great attraction on my doorstep. Even though we have visited the park on numerous occasions, my kids (5, 8 &11) still love to go. They are always enchanted but the walk into the Giant's Lair where they enter a beautifully crafted land of fairies, giants... More

Took a wee trip down to the Giant's Lair at Slieve Gullion. Wow! I wish I was a child again to believe in the magic of fairies!! Totally amazing - the little doorways, the houses, the bridge between the trees, the giant witch... So much to see. Great bus service from Murphy's pub in Meigh for £1 per person return... More
