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

A great family day out!! The kids loved the play park & especially the forrest walk looking for fairies & Giants (a great way to fuel their imagination). Just remember to bring wellies, even if it's a nice day the forrest is SO mucky, as my 6 year old discovered when his entire shoes & socks disappeared under a muck... More

Wee live locally to Slieve Gullion Forest Park and use it regularily. Unfortunately this wonderful tourist attraction with a guaranteed fun filled day out for young and old is at severe risk of been given a very bad reputation due to severe lack of parking facilities. The sculpture trail alongside the play park are a great asset to the area.... More

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
