Ards Forest Park

Landscapes & Nature See & Do


Ards forest park is situated on the small Ards Peninsula, on the shores of Sheephaven Bay on the northern coastline of County Donegal.

Ards Forest Park has many features of historical and archaeological interest, the remains of four ringforts and a number of megalithic tombs are to be seen in the park.

Ards Forest Park has signposted forest walks, these include the Ards Heritage Trail, which is around 3.5 km long, the Nature Trail and the Green Trail, which are both approximately 3 km long, and the Red Trail, which is 13 km long, though this walk does give provisions for a shortcut back to the starting point should it be needed. There are various viewing points on the walks and trails with views of the surrounding countryside.
