5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

we am across this park while out for a drive, the walk and sign posts with info are great but the real beauty is the views from the shore, this was to my shame my first time visiting sligo ( we only live 2hours away) and its one of the most beauitful and breathtaking places ive ever been! cant wait to go back

“Beautiful picnic spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2012

This beautiful park is located on the shores of Lough Gill. In summer time it is a favourite picnic location. Dooney Rock itself is immortalised in the poem "The Fiddler of Dooney" by Nobel Laureate William Butler Yeats. Lots of lovely lake side walks and you can climb the rock by a path from which there are fantastic views across the lake. Well worth a visit
