This has to be one of the best places to come to for a walk in the park with or without children, large area with a great view over Galway Bay, a well planned playground for the children and several walks through woods or in the open spaces.

Was in the area and decided to partake in the local parkrun at 09.30 on Saturday morning. The park is spotless and beautifully presented. The view across Galway Bay, South towards the Clare Hills and North towards Connemara were beautiful on a cold November morning. I ran there again on Sunday and over two days, saw no litter and only... More

Went to the park several times over the summer months to walk the dog in a traffic free zone with great sea views. Oranmore residents are very lucky to have this fantastic facility on their doorstep. Woodland walks ,picnic areas ,a barbecue area ,toilets ,and a mobile van selling coffees and ice cream etc. Playground and exercise machines all available.... More

We had overseas visitors staying and we took them to Rinville just a short drive from Galway city. It is a superb amenity and all FREE ! The walk through the woods is well marked and very easy going. Good information available at various points on the walk. To see the old castle is worth the visit just on its... More

I like getting out to Renville for a stroll. There's also a coastal walk if you walk out by the pier, but it's not a circle so you have to retrace your steps coming back, no biggie but some people like to walk in a loop. :)

We came across this place almost by accident whilst traveling around County Galway. A really good place, on a sunny day, for a walk with the family.

The Park is active with people and adorable dogs!! There are easy trails through open and wooded areas, and an exercise area. The park overlooks a small cove on Galway Bay that is ideal for viewing seaweeds at low tide, or just enjoying the sunset. Very Children-friendly

I love this park. Being close to the sea, you get to walk through a forest smelling the sea air. The trees have an amazing aroma that I love. The playground is great from 6months to 12 years and they have a free gym area for adults. Great for kids on bikes, roller blades, runners and walkers.

Thoroughly enjoyed this scenic park. Ocean views, forest walks, ruins - it offers a bit of everything. Very peaceful, great for travellers who need a bit of green space and beautiful peace and quiet.

We had the dickens of a time finding this delightful spot but once found, we returned a few times to walk the extensive paths and marvel at the ruins and enjoy the club. Really beautiful spot! We met the NICEST doggies, too!
