Excellent parkland with a Visitor Centre offering loads of information about the geology of the area along with walks
Great place to spend a half day with a picnic
All walks are manageable with some being longer than others

What an amazing discovery this must have been to find such exceptional geological features and prehistoric tombs all in one small area! What is even more impressive is how this has been made available to the public with the trails and new interpretation centre. It’s fascinating. We were impressed too by the high standard of the all weather trails and the good maintenance of the board walks and gravel trails. A lot of money has been invested - to good effect.

Some of the interpretation and information points on the trails are looking a little tired and in need of refurbishment, from sheer use mostly. And try as we might we could not find the promontory hill fort. Have the trees grown obscuring the view? The Tullygobban Lough is also barely visible, which is a shame as this is the name of this trail. But these are quibbles. It’s a really impressive place and well worth a visit, even in mixed weather.

We have been impressed by all of the sites in the Geopark - and this is as good as any of them.

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.

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!
