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

We visited here as we were staying in the area. We can’t really comment on the restaurant as we had packed a picnic but it was busy and had a nice atmosphere about it. We didn’t stop at the park but again it was busy and looked new. We did the drive round Slieve Gullion and it was beautiful. It... More

Everything in South Armagh was great. We especially enjoyed villages like Crossmaglen and Camlough and the archaeological sights strewn through the area.

On the forest drive there is a parking area at the summit. Leave your car and find the path opposite that winds its way to the top of the mountain. There's you'll find a Neolithic passage tomb, restored with a concrete roof to make it safe to enter. At the opposite end of the summit, past a magical lake, there... More

Slieve Gullion Forest Park is a must visit for all families visiting South Armagh. There is a wonderful playground for children of all ages and there is even a section for adults! The up keep of the playground was being seen to by a very attentive staff. There is also a very scenic forest drive around the hill with lots... More

The entrance to the Slieve Gullion park gives little away on this fantastic facility. There is ample car parking and a great focus on facilities for disabled users. A new huge adventure playground is suitable for kids if all ages with slides,swings,zip wire,climbing frames,willow dome and maze. While the kids played we had a go on the adult fitness equipment...
