“Good but dislikes mountain bikers”

Dooney Rock Forest Park
Ranked #27 of 123 things to do in Sligo
Attraction details
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Dooney Rock is a great spot, There are signs up banning the use of mountain bikes, Its a shame really as Sligo has great facilities for biking but they just don't use them, or allow them

Nice forest walk which takes you along the lake with reed beds and then up to a viewing point. Not too long or strenuous.

Have visited Dooney Wood many times and am always struck by the peacefulness and beauty of it. I love looking out at the lake and there are always lovely forest flowers in bloom depending on the season. Gentle inclines (except for the rock itself) make this a lovely place for people of all ages and ability to walk.

Ticked this as a visit for couples as it is a lovely spot to go for a romantic stroll. Brings back childhood memories of when I went there with my parents on a Sunday afternoon.
