Cork has some great spots to visit and one of these is the town of Doneraile and it’s famous Doneraile park. The vast spaces of Doneraile park have everything from deer and sheep to swans and squirrels. If you have a camera and enjoy walks then this is the place for you.
Doneraile Park comprises approximately 160 hectares of estate land with groves of deciduous trees, a stately home, many water features amongst much more which you can discover during a visit. The stately home I mention is actually Doneraile Court, the former residence of the St. Leger family. The building is currently being renovated and will be opened to the public at some point.
There are a few routes to take when walking and I recommend taking the upper loop to get a view of the deer and the house and also the lower loop which takes in the swans on the lake.
Keep your camera powered on as you never know what you will see and it’s worth having it on burst mode to capture as many shots as you can.
