Have spent many a Sunday afternoon here walking the trails or cycling. Great place to switch off and relax, just remember the $5 in coins for the entrance gate

Lovely walks of varying lengths. Nice walk along the lake with views of the old manor house. Some very old trees and lots of wildlife. The road in is quite long but would recommend to walk it to see the lovely hedgerows and maybe some martins or badgers.

Amazing day out, especially on sunny, warm days! Curragh Chase is a beautiful place, with lots of hidden gems and trails for walking! It really is a great place to bring your kids, dogs, families etc! However, elderly people may not be ideal for going on the trails as the walks may be a bit much for them, kids are... More

Bring the bikes, bring the walking shoes, this is a great day out for the family. Scenic walks and lovely views. The children can cycle here too, with very little hills etc. A great location for a picnic.

This park is a great place to let children really run freely. It is also nice for an adult stroll. There is a big old ruined house and lovely lawns and it is easy to imagine what it must have been like in past times with a Lord of the Manor in residence and all the trappings. A little bridge...

Curraghchase Forest Park is a must see attraction for families. There are great trail to follow throughout the park, good areas for cycling and exploring. We always ring a picnic with us as there was no shop open when we visit although this may have changed as I have heard that a coffee shop has opened in the caravan park... More

Come here often as it is within an hour. Brings back memories of my childhood from my scouting days. Very nice for a ramble or to just wander around with the family.
