    Very helpful staff on arrival who gave a helpful leaflet with different walks. Just £5 to park for the whole day. There was a drinks/chips van plus a good playground for the children. Hadn't been sinc...  more »

    Simply one word Beautiful!! Tollymore is just one of those magical places to explore and relax, lose yourself in the trees where Games of Thrones has filmed, and unwind to the sound of the rivers.  more »

    We spent the afternoon exploring Tollymore Forest Park. It is the perfect place to walk as a couple or enjoy with the family. The trails are easy to follow and contain natural and man-made pleasures.  more »

    The park itself is stunning and everywhere you look there are fantastic views. You can choose to laze around in the sun (when it shows itself!), walk around the lovely arboretum or be more energetic and cycle, walk or run one of the well marked trails. We stayed at the caravan park and although quite good, needs to be more closely monitored and updated in parts. There were too many commercial vehicles driving around the site; vans, pickups and car recovery units. Not what you expect, or want, when trying to relax. Other than that is is a great spot and I expect we'll return one day.

    We have spent a week at Tollymore Forest Park in our touring caravan. Beautiful scenery and lovely forest walks. But the toilet block was disgusting wouldn't like my kids use them, dogs poo an litter everywhere and on the last day there were litter pickers out. Commercial vehicles with caravans arrived on site an continuously went in an out til late at night . All the traffic in the park had no respect for kids out playing speeding up an down. This park as so much potential if they could just spend more time looking how to improve it.

    Great place for all the family. Nice forest walks of varying lengths to suit most. Camping site and large spaces to play too. All situated at the foot of the mournes meaning with good weather comes spectacular views.

    Fantastic place to visit highly recommend it. I went here with a game of thrones tour which was also fantastic. Clear walking areas and beautiful scenery. The forest is very much something out of fantasy.

    Great open spaces, fabulous trees, wonderful forest and streamside walks. Good clean toilet block. Walks well signposted if you walk in the preferred anti-clockwise direction but impossible to follow markers clockwise. Cafe shut on 12th July.
