Tollymore Forest Park
#1 of 9 Nature & Parks in Newcastle
Tollymore Forest Park nestles at the foot of the spectacular Mourne Mountains - and is a paradise of tumbling rivers, colourful trees, birdsong and mountain / forest trails.
The main attraction of the park is the fantastic walks that follow rivers, ascend hills to fantastic views and wind along a mix of broad and narrower paths.

Murlough National Nature Reserve

The stunning views of the Irish Sean and across towards Newcastle with the back drop of the Mourne Mountains.. Slieve Donard standing at 2790ft is pictured beautifully from Murlough Nature Reserve.
Murlough National Nature Reserve offers miles of walking trails along sheep paths and open moorland where wild ponies roam and heath dunes to the beach along Dundrum Bay.
Silent Valley and Ben Crom Reservoirs
#3 of 9 Nature & Parks in Newcastle
Any time of day or any season the views and serenity of the place is fantastic they have added an adventure park but my kids loved feeding the ducks and rolling down the steep hill in front of the dam
Fantastic spot to bring kids to enjoy the views, the nature trails or the play areas.
Dundrum Castle
#4 of 9 Nature & Parks in Newcastle
The walk is charming and once you arrive at the castle you are rewarded by sweeping views of Dundrum Bay and Murlough Nature reserve.
There is a good sized car park and a walk up to the castle, which can be a bit steep.

Slieve Donard
#5 of 9 Nature & Parks in Newcastle
We took the route from Donard car park in Newcastle, picking a path through the woods via tree roots and small boulders, alongside the river and its picturesque waterfalls.
My (nearly) teenage son and I walked this route from Bloody Bridge car park and it was an excellent day out.

Kilbroney Park
#6 of 9 Nature & Parks in Newcastle
This park is wonderful to have a wander about, it has a beautiful more formal style garden area that then leads to woods which are great to explore.
However we absolutely loved the area ( we even climbed a mountain!!) It really is worth a visit and is kid friendly with lots of parks and bike hire.
