Went there recently with a number of family and their kids. There is a lovely drive into the park but road is a little narrow and some people were walking so it is important to stick to speed limits. On entry it is necessary to pay €5 (in coins only)for entry. There is no one there to help if required... More

Underrated in terms of historical significance for this region. A large garden and forest on front of former family residence with additional little park for kids to play in. There is a café on the road in as well as a fairy garden which is short but good to look at and walk through. Be warned there is a toll... More

If you love the outdoors then you will love Curraghchase Park.....from cycle lanes, to hiking and great picnic spots there is something for everyone. There is an entrance fee of €5 (in coins) but that allows you access for the whole day......a magical day out for all the family

It was our first visit to an actual forest in Ireland. We happened upon it entirely on accident and I am quite sure we could never find our way back, that being said, if you can find it... go there. It is so beautiful. I ride my horse all the time in the countryside and forest near me and it... More

Have spent many a Sunday afternoon here walking the trails or cycling. Great place to switch off and relax, just remember the $5 in coins for the entrance gate

Lovely walks of varying lengths. Nice walk along the lake with views of the old manor house. Some very old trees and lots of wildlife. The road in is quite long but would recommend to walk it to see the lovely hedgerows and maybe some martins or badgers.

Amazing day out, especially on sunny, warm days! Curragh Chase is a beautiful place, with lots of hidden gems and trails for walking! It really is a great place to bring your kids, dogs, families etc! However, elderly people may not be ideal for going on the trails as the walks may be a bit much for them, kids are... More

Bring the bikes, bring the walking shoes, this is a great day out for the family. Scenic walks and lovely views. The children can cycle here too, with very little hills etc. A great location for a picnic.
