Nature Loving Dad

Does your dad enjoy getting close to nature and wildlife?  Here are just some ideas for a day out in the great outdoors.

• Visit Castle Espie Wetland Centre on the shores of Strangford Lough in County Down.  Follow the nature walks and get close to the wild and endangered birds then visit the Loughshore Café and giftshop. 

Crom Estate, County Fermanagh• Enjoy some Father's Day Fun at beautiful Crom Estate on Upper Lough Erne, County Fermanagh (15 June).  Dad can try his hand at archery or water activities, and the whole family can discover the amazing nature and wildlife including ancient woodland, rare butterflies and the largest heronry in Ireland.

• Spend an afternoon at Belfast Zoo, home to more than 1,000 animals and 150 species, or Exploris Aquarium in Portaferry, County Down, with its wealth of aquatic liffe and seal sanctuary . 

• Bring dad and the whole family for a gentle stroll around one of our many beautiful forest and country parks.  Options include Tollymore Forest Park County Down (a filming location for HBO's Game of Thrones), Roe Valley Country Park along the banks of the River Roe in Limavady, Gortin Glen Forest Park set among the Sperrin Mountains in County Tyrone and the unique Peatlands Park near Lough Neagh in Co. Armagh.
