Lovely small park
Apr 2021 • Solo
Located just outside Blacklion, this small park makes for a excellent visit. There is a good size car park with a few picnic tables. There is a small open air exhibition centre which gives background on the park and its key features.

There are 4 short loop walks ranging from 1.2km to 2.8km that take you around the park. These are well signposted and easy to complete.

Some of the key highlights are the Calf House portal tomb, Giants Grave and Tullygobban Lough.

Scenic History
Oct 2020
What a fantastic hidden gem - absolutely beautiful, peaceful and amazing place....kind of fell on it on a scenic drive and so glad we did. Well signed paths, lots of easy to digest info posts, and routes linked together so easy to do a detour at your will. Fantastic sense of history and the VIEWS!! WOW. We were lucky - after a rainy morning blue skies and clear view all the way to Sligo - stunning. Boardwalks would be a great adventure for wee ones and none of the paths are overly challenging (from a plump middle aged doll) One advantage of Covid was we were totally alone and could enjoy the total serenity. Loved it!

A complex of archaeological and geological sites.
Jun 2020
The layout of the site is not overly clear at times, with plenty of signs for different walks and trails, but less signs for the actual monuments themselves. There are two significant portal tombs here, and two large wedge tombs. There is easy parking and a visitor centre, and the walkways are well-maintained and kept. It is pretty countryside and very pleasant to wander throughout. I only wish that the signage was a little more descriptive, as it was awkward to find things at times.

Going to the Source
Sep 2019
Short paved walk to the source of the Shannon (although disputed after recent exploration). Lots of free parking. Children’s playground. Good signage. On a sunny autumn day it’s a perfect outing.
