Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Much more than the typical forest park. Trip in ancient history. Well worth the drive. Short walks . Longest 3km. Go see for yourself

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.
