Slieve Gullion Forest Park

Slieve Gullion is a mountain in the southern reaches of Armagh. The six miles drive around the slopes of Slieve Gullion gives visitors stunning views of the surrounding countryside.
Containing walled gardens, walks through mature woodlands and newly opened children’s adventure park, Slieve Gullion Forest Park is very much an adventurers playground and deserved ‘winner’ of the Tourism Partner Initiative, NITA Awards 2013.
The mountain top trail leads to two megalithic cairns and neighbouring lake with over 2,000 years of legend and history. From the top you are rewarded with stunning views across the Ring of Gullion, the Cooley and Mourne mountain ranges and Armagh itself.
Historic heroes such as Cuchulainn and Finn McCool are said to have trodden the slopes of this historic area.
A walk within the walled garden is highly recommended, as is a day with the kids in the unrivaled kids & adults adventure park where swings, slides and climbing frames help tire the kids out while the adults relax in the great outdoors.
Slieve Gullion Courtyard, in the midst of the park, offer pleasant surrounding where you can enjoy a coffee or something more substantial in the cafe or restaurant.
