The demense is located in an area between Lough Gill and the Garavogue River. The nature trail itself forms a loop of about three kilometres, with two shorter alternatives available. All are clearly marked and begin and end at the car park. Hazelwood House was built for Lieutenant General Owen Wynne in 1724 and was designed by the architect Richard Cassels, who was also responsible for buildings such as Leinster House and Powerscourt. Hazelwood House is not open to the public.
Only three kilometres from Sligo Town at half Moon Bay on the shores of Lough Gill is the Hazelwood Demense. Well known locally for its forest trails, where you will find a quiet picnic area and beautiful lakeside views.
