You don’t have to be a Game of Thrones fan to appreciate Tollymore Forset Park. It’s an amazing forest park nestling in the foothills of the Mourne Mountains, with winding streams and waterfalls everywhere. Tree lovers can examine experimental forest plots, with exotic trees such as monkey puzzle and eucalyptus or the tall giant redwoods and Monterey pines. Above all, it’s about walking through the forest or along trails up into the mountains.
All this activity is likely to build up quite a thirst, so isn’t it good to know that The Maghera Inn is only a short stroll away across the Castlewellan Road, where a warm welcome and a cold pint awaits the weary walker.
