Lovely place to go for a walk. There are different routes so you can go for short or long walk and you get to see some deer and enjoy nature. There is a playground here also and plenty of parking.

Doneraile is a nice park to go for a walk, particularly towards the end of winter and in spring. One can see herds of deer as well as other wild life e.g. ducks and swans. There are numerous picturesque bullrushes. There is a really nice...More
