Northern Colorado is an ideal place for dog owners, with plenty of natural features ideal for trekking with your furry friend, but what about going out in Fort Collins?

Doggy day out: Top dog-friendly spots in Northern Ireland

Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017

You can enjoy your holidays without feeling guilty about leaving your four-legged friend behind as more and more spots in Northern Ireland have become dog-friendly.

We treat them like one of the family, feed them, play with them and sometimes even clothe them, but when it comes to holidays, we often leave them behind at kennels or family members with a heavy heart.
But throughout Northern Ireland there has been an upsurge in dog-friendly activities, restaurants and accommodation, making it easier for you to bring all  the family on a short break this summer. With long walks, beautiful beaches, stunning scenery and plenty of dog-friendly activities, accommodation and eateries, Co Down is the ideal place for a fun dog-friendly holiday.
Let your dog explore the rolling 6,000 year old sand dunes along a 2.5 mile walk at Murlough National Nature Reserve while you enjoy the stunning views of the Mourne Mountains and Dundrum Castle. Just keep an eye out for signs warning of restricted areas where birds may be nesting at this time of year. If your doggy still hasn’t sniffed enough, access to Murlough Beach is available via the reserve where they can investigate until their heart is content.
