Peaceful area for a picnic and walk
Mar 2021 • Couples
Stopped here for a picnic by the water and a short riverside walk. There is definitely more to investigate here during the coming summer. Lovely peaceful area and easily accessed.

Great riverside walk
Jul 2020 • Couples
We only covered about half of the available length of riverside paths but it’s very peaceful throughout. Various spots along the river for car parking which allows you to dip in and out different sections of the path.
Plentiful swans and ducks on the water with lots of bird live around as well. We didn’t go as far as these bird hide but we’re told it’s an excellent viewpoint.

Run Down lockdown Quoile
May 2020 • Solo
Have been visiting lots recently for my daily exercise after work. Nice for an evening walk or run. Very pretty when the sun shines. Easy to get to from Downpatrick via foot. Not too busy with other visits.

Don't drive by without stopping!
Aug 2019 • Family
Driven by this many times but will call in from now on. A centre for wildlife learning, bursting with information and things to do, the Quoile centre is fascinating. We spent ages in this place looking at a the information and displays inside. .I kid you not! Outside are the most beautiful flower displays and bountiful butterflies and insects. The gardens are tended by local volunteers. They are small but stunning. As if that wasn't enough there are beautiful walks along the waterside. We also went up to the birdhide further up the road. We had a postcard view of birdlife with the mountains of Mourne in the background. The kids I took want to take up bird watching. It was that good. Make sure you bring your binoculars. Very helpful and friendly staff at the centre.

If it wasn't for the off-lead dogs, it would be great
May 2019 • Couples
Very nice location, peace and quiet one would expect. We are living locally and tried to enjoy evening walks there. Unfortunately, there are a few selfish people who think they own the place having off-lead, out of control dogs running around which are pestering other people with their dogs who just try to enjoy this nice place. We will not be going there anymore, how sad!

I’ve canoed it before and there are little lakeside paths if you can find them

Serene beauty on your doorstep. Ideal for a picnic. Lots of things to see and do in the area. Parking spots and even toilets at one location

Boats used to bring Timber here from around 1835
May 2018 • Solo
Very nice walkway beside the water from the Quoile Countryside Centre, and Quoile Castle ,to Steamboat Quay, where boats brought in Timber from Baltic and Canadian Ports from around 1835.
This is also "Game of Thrones " territory in more recent times.

Canoe and steam train.
May 2017 • Couples
We were just in time to see the train, catching it would have involved getting very wet! Beautiful serene and calm.
