“Union Wood Sligo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Well worth a visit! Great for running energy out of lively kids or for giving the dogs a good run! Lots of tracks to follow. Can take in a side hike up to Union Rock which gives great views over Sligo Bay, Knocknarea, Collooney and surrounding area. If you go around dusk you stand a really good chance of seeing some of the many fallow Deer which inhabit the wood!

“Isle of Innisfree”

I stood by the edge of the Lough and recited the poem that I was taught in school many years ago. I felt at peace there.

“Nice walking area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

Old oak woodland as well as commercial forestry, within easy reach of Sligo. Plenty of trails for long or short walks, or for mountain biking. Badly signposted, but it doesn't matter; you can't really get too lost!
