“a hidden gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

The park was the find of our weekend break. The main gates are closed at the moment as the road is being repaired but we were told by a lovely local girl in a coffee shop to go down to the marina and in to the forest that way. The walks are well sign posted and lovely. We seen lots of deer roaming around and spent a lovely few hours exploring. finished our visit off by feeding the ducks and swans in the marina.

“couldnt access due to the potholes!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Attempted to visit the forest park this evening but drove a couple of hundred yards off the main road to access the park but the potholes were so bad that we had to turn back. Cannot believe in the year of the gathering where we are encouraging people to come back to Ireland and to visit some of our wonderful public parks etc that someone has not addressed the road into the forest park in portumna. We visited this approx last February or March and the road was just as bad so it would appear that nobody is taking any responsibility for the upkeep of the entrance road. This is such a shame as I remember the forest park from years ago and it was a fantastic amenity to visit. Will be keeping an eye on the situation to see if there are any improvements to the status of the road.
