This is a lovely park with red deer, swans, ducks and other wildlife - it has a great kids playground which is enclosed by a fence and clean and I enjoy taking my child there. However, irresponsible dog owners use this beauty spot as a dogs lavatory. On my last visit we parked and stepped onto the grass to open the boot and just avoided a big pile of dog faeces, as we walked further along the path there was another huge pile right in the middle of the road, further along there was a little girl waiting for her dad to catch up and she was jumping around unknowingly in another pile which was also on the path. Having walked on the lawns its the same situation, you see kids running around on the grass and there is dog faeces around. Many dogs are running around off the leads. I am a dog lover but its such a shame that irresponisble people like this let their dogs do their business all over and dont pick it up. Apart from the play area I would not let my child run on the grass or let go of their hand in doneraile park. Millstreet park is better for children as dogs are not allowed in the central area and you can just let them off and know they are safe and its clean. The tearooms at doneraile are a nice bonus.
