Nicki from Kilkenny

Such a gorgeous local amenity for us, we love spending time here. It's peaceful and always an adventure for the kids. The deer are lovely & well cared for. There are picnic tables, toilets, a lovely area to roll down the hill or play ball & tig. The bluebells in may & June are stunning.

John from Dublin

A good walk, and one of the few with toilet facilities. The route itself is bland and the longer loop took us 45 minutes. An open forest road for all the route so not much variety.

Marie from Longford

Lovely walk around the woods, very well kept area with loads of car parking and plenty of space for a picnic with the family. The deer in the park are also a lovely aspect for the kids to enjoy. Would definitely recommend!!
