The Dromore Nature Reserve is a bucolic and peaceful place to go for an afternoon with the kids and the family for a bit of exploring and a picnic. Make sure to pick a warm sunny day and you will have a brilliant day out.

There are 2 marked routes but once you get to know the area you will discover many other routes to choose from. Great for kids or for walking your dog. Highly recommended.
