Spent a few hours looking for fairies with our 5 yr old. She really enjoyed it and couldn't wait to find the next doorway round the corner. I was pushing a buggy with our 2 yr old which was tricky enough off the main path but still manageable. It's quite a climb but it's a fairly gradual gradient and there... More

We spent three hours walking the Slieve Gullion circuit and discovered several Giants and many Fairies in the forest. The steep grades on the well-maintained trails sapped our 4yo's energy but that was replenished by a welcome 99 at the end of the trek. We appreciated the vendors accepting euro and admired the scores of volunteers manning the parking lot... More

Had a wonderful day with my daughters and some friends here today. Kids played in the playgound, which is very well equiped and well kept. Plenty of places to have a picnic. Lots of exercise equipment for the fit adults. Then you can do the walk into the forest. Fairy and troll glaore. Such a magical place. Another fabplayground was... More

We were stopped from entering the car park because it was full. We were instructed to go to another car park a few miles away and use the park and ride system. We stood for over an hour in a queue for a small bus to bring us up to the forest park. On the way in I noticed lots... More

Visited Ring of Gullion, lovely scenery, we had a great day out with the family. A great deal to do for all ages and a visit to Sleeve Gullion is great fun with a walk through the fairy land. Kids of all ages will have a great time. It is worth a visit.

This is an area of outstanding beauty in Northern Ireland..It was formed millions of years ago by volcanic activity and some of the granite rocks are claimed to be over 390 million years old. The ring is rich in Irish legends and at the summit of Slieve Gullion there is a lake and to this day legend has it if... More

Slieve Gullion mountain is a favourite haunt of mine...a mountain road affords those unable to climb/walk any distance to experience its natural beauty with views all around the local area and far beyond . I am amazed by how much the Mountain has been updated ...there is now a fully stepped pathway leading to the peak and an ancient Cairn... More

First time in Slieve Gullion today. We were not aware that it was quite a distance to the '2nd' car park, we wish there had been clearer map/instructions at the first car park to explain this. Therefore we walked to second car park then onto Slieve Gullion summit which was a nice walk, we would have went further but the... More

We took the Ring of Gullion Historic Coach tour, run by the Ring of Gullion Landscape Partnership and leant so much about an area we were unaware of before. The mountains and countryside are beautiful, so very green and therefore different from the nearby Mournes. There are hidden lakes and pieces of history we would not have easily found without...

We visited here on a bright day because we'd heard about the amazing scenery. The variety of ancient historical sites such as dolmens, cairns, chambered graves, ancient churches, etc in the area was incredible. However some of these sites need better signposting if the Newry and Mourne Council are serious about making the area more visitor friendly. We stopped in... More
