Loved our walks and runs in the forest park. Hot sunny weather helped. Walks from the marina were beautiful taking in the monastery and castle while the kids were fishing. Lovely in all weathers though. Much recommended

Lovely park. However the toilets are disgusting, no soap,terrible smell, urine leaking onto the floor. The disabled toilet is an absolute disgrace.

A credit to Portumna, not many places free of charge like this in the country. Beautiful scenery, lovely walks, big car park.

I love walking here, there is so much wildlife to see escpecially the Fallow deer. I would walk my mum's Border Collie, he would always spot the red squirrels in the trees. I always feel refreshed and relaxed after our walk

We spent our afternoon walking the trails of this beautiful, peaceful forest park accompanied by early summer birdsong - a perfect soundtrack!. It seemed very busy judging from the number of cars in the carpark but there is enough space for everyone. We hardly met...More

Gates close at 7pm as far as I remember and I didn't see any sign of that changing for the summer time but I could be mistaken.
