About

Redburn Country Park is set on a beautiful escarpment above Belfast Lough. There are 7km of pathways with spectacular views of Belfast and the south Antrim hills.

The beauty and variety of the mixed woodland, the compact distances and ever-changing woodland species make this a wonderful place to explore on foot. Whether you are a serious rambler, trail runner or simply want to take a short stroll, follow the woodland paths and enjoy the wildlife on the way. Journey to the hilltop and enjoy the panoramic viewpoint. At the top visitors are rewarded with breathtaking views from Belfast Lough to the south Antrim hills. This area is excellent for bird watching, plane spotting, kite flying or exploring the woodland and grassland habitats. A special treat is the carpet of bluebells that appear each Spring.

For those with an equestrian interest, the woodland trails can be enjoyed on horseback, creating your own unique experience. Recommended bridle paths are marked to ensure you get the best routes through the Park. Permits to use the bridle paths can be obtained from Crawfordsburn Country Park.

Follow the A2 from Belfast to Bangor. Redburn Country Park is signposted from the junction at Palace Barricks.
