This is a fantastic place to walk. Lots of different paths to follow, some strenuous and some easier. Lots to explore along the way including the Holywood Mens Sheds! Beautiful trees and some excellent views if you climb highly enough. Still lots to explore 😁

Redburn country park is a fantastic place to visit just outside of Belfast. There are beautiful panoramic views across Belfast lough and plenty of space to let your dog roam about. It is a popular spot for dog walkers, runners and walkers.

It's suitable but paths are quite steep in places (and muddy) You might want to bring a buggy along incase they get tired.
