We were staying close by so came here for a walk. The park is just beautiful. It has 3 different trails which are all different lengths. The scenery is fab, from green fields filled with deer to woodland walks. Highly recommend visiting here. There are tearooms but we didn’t get a chance to pop in there.

A beautiful park, but far too dangerous to bring my three year old twins ever again. The park is full of teenagers and adults racing around the parks on mini bikes. Whilst walking across a narrow bridge a bike passed at high speed within inches of my son without stopping. My daughter was so scared she fell off her bike. At least 6 bikes in the park, after this very time a bike got close by son and daughter were inconsolable with terror. The park is full of OPW wardens but did nothing about the bikes. This is a serious accident waiting to happen. I’ve been to this park many t8mes, but never again. To dangerous to bring young children.

This is a little hidden gem of a park in county Cork! The park is very well maintained and it has a variety of lovely walks. There are lots of deer, ducks and swans to see in the park also. The old manor house is now also open to the public. There is a great playground for kids also. There was also a lovely food truck with a seating area at the back of the manor house.

We arrived on Sunday 9th of August. The public toilets were closed so we asked the manager if our young children could use the ones inside the house, under no circumstances he said and I pointed out that a young child not mine was visably in need of facilities, again no way, he could not give me an answer when I asked him what other toilets were available because there were none other than those located in the house.

His attitude was both lacking in empathy and professionalism. I can only assume that he does not have children or is somekind of sadist who takes pleasure in someone else's pain, simply put he was a horrible human being.

It was our first time visiting Doneraile Park, while the park and walkways were gorgeous and the cafe quite nice the attitude of the manger(or so he said) was appalling. We had been to the playground and came back to the cafe, just after ordering food the children needed the toilet which were located by the playground, we returned to the playground to find them closed we came back to the cafe and asked to use the ones in the house but the manager refused. Under no circumstance would he let anyone use the facilities, at this stage alot of people needed the bathroom. His response was "you should parent better" what an appalling person, he's an embarrassment!!!!!

This is a lovely parkland with lots of well defined walking tracks enclosed by high stone walls. There is plenty of parking available, a great playground, and large expanses of water with ducks and swans. A river and waterfall provide even more interest, with magnificent mature trees providing cool and shade for many understory plantings. Not too sure where the wildlife tag in the name comes from unless referring to a few deer. Please don't expect lions, tigers and bears ! Never the less a wonderful asset to the area and an absolute delight. This is part of the St. Ledger demesne and the house - Doneraile Court is on the property and also well worth a visit.

A great place to go for a walk. Loads of different paths suitable for most people. there is a huge variety of flora. the trees are truly beautiful and there are many different types. There is a nice river flowing through the grounds. There is plenty of parking. Therer are some very nice tea rooms where the food is good and the tea hot. The house is also well worth a visit. the ground floor rooms only are open to the public and one can take a guided tour around these. There is a lovely play ground that is well fenced. There are toilets which are clean and nice.
