Very nice walk. The pathways were well maintained well signed and the walled garden which contains a autograph tree was kept in pristine condition. Lovely

If you enjoy the beauty of nature, take any of the trails through the forest. My favorite is the trail that goes out along the turlough to the lake. It is no wonder that so many great poets, play writes and artist spent time at...More

Beautiful little park - very well maintained. Can walk on a paved trail for a couple miles to a lake. Captive deer in the park too along with some nice gardens.

Beautiful park! Such a Gem that we happened upon. Love the history behind this park. Walking the gardens was magical abs then we had amazing tea and pie at the tea shop after. Really a lovely day!

A sad history to the disappearance of this family home where artists of all sorts gathered, invited by Lady Gregory. What is left though is the beautiful woods and walled gardens - great for children and picnicking and learning something of the way of life...More

A lovely place to visit and walk around. The cafe there serves delicious cakes and the service is lovely too. Well worth a visit especially if you are a WB Yeats fan. Attached is my picture of Wild Swans at Coole.

We visited Coole park following the inspirations of Yeats and so glad that we did. The story of Lady Gregory told by her grandchildren is a wonderful exhibition in the visitors centre. Then take a stroll through the gardens and trails. Stop by and look...More

Spacious, well cared for. Loads of walks, peaceful, good coffee shop Fell safe factor when you have small children, but bring some balls, or other mobile play items. No matter how busy Coole Park is it always peaceful.

There are a number of buses from Galway to Gort, but none to Coole park. Coole is about 2 km from Gort town. If you are a person who walks a lot this will be no problem. Otherwise I would suggest that you get the bus to... More
