Beautiful place for a walk on a nice day, woodland walks and lakeside walks. Lots of picnic tables and benches too for picnics. Toilets and portaloos on sight but shop all boarded up. Good site maps around the park with different walks to choose from....More

Lovely place to spend a couple of hours in peace. Bring some lunch and enjoy alongside the lake. There is a nice forest trail as well for you to experience the peacefulness of nature.

Forested walking area with good scenery over the lake. Some picnic areas also. we only did a short circuit as we had young kids but maps are provided so you can plan what ever walk you want. Park is 10 minutes drive from Cavan approx.

This is a lovely piece of Nature’s real estate with hiking trails and an abundance of peace and quiet. The air smelled sweet and watching the anglers was relaxation personified. Our main purpose for the visit was to see Killykeen Cottage but that is another...More
