“Great forest to walk and relax”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Beautiful and lovely forest with long walks and views on Mournes to spend 4-5 hours. It has also lots of camping places where one can camp and spend a night.

Spent a very pleasant few hours here exploring the various forest trails by bike. Very beautiful scenery, pareticularly near the river that runs through the park.

“Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Brilliant walk for children of all ages. There was a real nice feel to the park, everyone around seemed so friendly. Walked along the river my wee boy aged 7 loved it jumping on the stepping stones and jumping in and out of the water.

We had a bite to eat afterwards from the on site chippy van, very nice, but took ages as the park was packed.

“It was great to get back here after so long”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Went for a family picnic and ramble there at the weekend and it was awesome. I haven't been there for such a long time and was blown away once again. I have been all over the world and its hard to find any forest to compare to the beauty of Tollymore. I have been going here since childhood and I am never disappointed.

“Great for walking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

We loved the woodland and river side walks, the Hermitage was a great feature and the kids loved the stepping stones over the Shimna river. Their are clearly marked trails for all levels of fitness
