Walking is one of the most popular ways to immerse yourself in the beautiful scenery and landscape of Parknasilla and truly experience its individuality.  With seven mapped walks to help navigate 500 acres of lush vegetation and wildlife, the trails are suitable for any age or ability. Walks vary from a 30 minute stroll to a 2 hour hike and we offer guided walks on alternate days providing in depth knowledge of the surroundings and its extensive history. Head Gardener Mike O’ Leary and his team of dedicated gardeners work tirelessly all year round to ensure our grounds and gardens are immaculate for you and your family to enjoy.

The Fairy Trail is the most magical and enchanting areas of Parknasilla Resort. Searching for the mysterious fairy houses under the shelter of the woodland area provides for a memorable experience for all the family. We have discovered 11 fairy houses so far and have mapped them out for you to enjoy. Will you be the first to spot a fairy?

To enjoy the delights that these estate walking trails have to offer all you need is comfortable shoes and a desire to explore. Walk around the ruins of Derryquin Castle, spot the seals or bring a famous Parknasilla Picnic to eat along the way, whatever you choose make memories that will last you a lifetime.
