What to see: Daisy Hill Wood is a prominent feature on the hill which rises above the city of 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.
