Tollymore Forest Park is a forest park in County Down in Northern Ireland. Magnificent, it gathers in the same place forests, waterfalls, bridges, as well as some rather interesting buildings on the architecture side… A real landmark for nature lovers!

Visit Tollymore Forest Park

An arboretum at the gates of the Mourne Mountains

Tollymore Park is pretty huge! Among its unmistakable features are its imposing cork oaks, its trails along the Shimna River (a pretty river that runs through the forest), as well as its bridges and its barn that looks surprisingly like a church (designed by the great Thomas Wright of Durham (1711-1786)) .

But it doesn’t stop there! You will also come across Gothic portals, rocky outcrops (natural and man-made), caves and much more!

During your walk, you will discover that it is in the heart of this forest that the oaks used for the interior decoration of the White Star Line liners were once collected! The Titanic is no exception, and it was the Tollymore oak trees that were used for the interior design of the ship.

Finally, you should know that the forest was used as a filming location for some scenes of the Iron Throne… A plus for fans of the TV series!
