Daisy Hill Wood Local Nature Reserve

Daisy Hill Wood LNR is a green lung, set right in the heart of Newry city and it is open all year round for free public access (the wood is accessed from the Pound Road, Newry). Both hill and woodland are well-known because of their interesting origins: for 100 years the site was a world-renowned plant nursery, Daisy Hill Nursery. The nursery has left its legacy in the form of many exotic trees and shrubs, including walnut, robinia and bamboo.

Members of the local community formed the ‘Daisy Hill Nursery Wood Conservation Group’ in 2006. The group meet regularly to carry out practical conservation management in the woodland.
