“A beautiful place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

An outstanding place with beautiful views. Silent valley has many walks and it is a must see attraction. The place really shows you the true nature of Ireland, there is a small fee of about £4 by car but its well worth the money.

“What a Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

Being a lover of the Mountains and the great out doors this wonderful park set in the heart of the mourne mountains offer people with varying degrees of outdoor experience the option to explore, the higher you climb the more you are rewarded with views that open out to the Irish Sea on the Eastern side while you can see down to Carlingford Lough on the South side, wonderful park, amazing mountains with varying degrees of technical challenges

“not to be missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

easilly accessed unique mountain scenery - much scope for exploring walking trails with map - worth the entry fee - family friendly - the Dam itself is well worth the 15 minute walk with spectacular mountain vista - walk enthusiasts can bring a picnic haversack and walk on tarmac another 3 miles to Ben Crom higher dam (shuttle minibus for return trip in Summer- otherwise walk back) , with over 200 steps to top of the high dam - ordinary mortals should not miss the 1.5 mile designated Nature Trail entered from the car park, suitabe for child buggies and riverside picnics - higher gravel paths lead from this up the mountainside across marked trail to a viewing point above the main Dam, with great mountain views, the leading down and across the Dam itself (2 miles) - always check weather forecasts and dress accordingly!

Spent a morning walking round and enjoying the views. Rained, but it was still a lovely place to visit.
