This is a great place to walk around on a nice afternoon. Many famous literary figures have visited here over a century ago and its interesting to see what life was like one hundred years ago. There's also a large park around here where you can walk with friends or family and enjoy the scenery. Trees and lakes, etc.

This is a really lovely place to visit. Lovely walks and really nice cafe. Good interpretative centre as well. Nice place to get away from it all. You can bring dog for a walk but have to keep him on lead. They have a nice place to tie up dogs as you have your lunch in cafe. Very good standard... More

We recently visited the park to stretch the legs on a trip from Ennis. The park has lovely walkways and lots to see and explore. The autograph tree and walled gardens were beautiful as well as the poetry quotes on stone. We visited the visitor center which is in a lovely old building. This is also well laid out although...

The grounds are a pleasure to walk around and quite extensive. There's a cafe there also that serves great lunches up til about 4pm. No charge for entry to the grounds or for parking which is pretty good.

This is a low key but high quality visitor experience at what was once the home of Lady Gregory an iconic figure of the Irish Literary Revival. A well research introductory film combined with a small but insightful exhibition covers Lady Gregory's life. The cafe has quality food cooked freshly on site & the e surrounding gardens & walking trails... More

This place is lovely for a walk with a buggy. There are a few different routes to take in there, I opted for the woods trail which takes around 1 hr with a buggy. The path gets a bit stony in places but a lot has been re surfaced and very smooth. The walk is well shaded too which means... More

Coole House sadly is no more but the wonderful parklands remain. The authograph tree on the grounds is well worth a visit. It was signed by many of the famous literary figures of the 20th Century. There are lots of picnic tables available in this area and it makes for a lovely spot for a family get together. Weather permitting????... More
