Lovely spot for a Sunday stroll. Bit of effort required on the longer routes, nothing too tough and I often have a buggy to push. Decent playground.

The best part of this walk is the open area and space which is great for families and kids. There is a playground at the beginning of the walk and a small picnic area. There is a fenced off area where the deer roam, walk...More

Myself and the extended family loved our couple of hours in Doneraile Park. Calling it a wildlife park is a little bit misleading. It has deer and ducks and a lot of birds but it's not exactly safari territory! That said it is really beautiful,...More

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.
