I loved the walk in Redburn Country park. It is very handy to Holywood. Good view of Belfast loch are seen from here. The day I went there were a lot of dog walkers in groups but otherwise it was a nice walk

Excellent walk especially on clear sunny days. Your efforts walking up the paths are well rewarded with stunning views over Belfast Lough. Sit and enjoy watching the planes and boats coming in and out of Belfast. Very well maintained paths.

Came after seeing other reviews and was not disappointed, expect my phone did on me. Great view of Belfast and a nice walk round the park too. Lovely way to spend a few hours.

This is a fantastic place to walk. Lots of different paths to follow, some strenuous and some easier. Lots to explore along the way including the Holywood Mens Sheds! Beautiful trees and some excellent views if you climb highly enough. Still lots to explore 😁

Steep and hilly but worth it for the nice views at the top on a clear and sunny day! It is well maintained and quite spread out with information points scattered throughout. Interesting to learn that there was once a bear pit and zoo there...More

It's suitable but paths are quite steep in places (and muddy) You might want to bring a buggy along incase they get tired.
