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.

Easy to find with plenty of parking and well maintained pathways for all to explore. The visitor centre was worth a visit and we enjoyed chatting with the very helpful and informative staff who also gave us details for our visits to Kiltarten Gregory Museum/schoolhouse...More

Lovely walled garden, park and wetlands. Free admission. Great for a walk with (or without) a dog. Don't forget to have a look at the autograph tree with the initials of eg Jack B. Yeats, George Bernard Shaw carved on a huge copper beech.

We loved the quiet garden scenery and peaceful walk, along with the historical connection to the Irish Literary Revival and Abbey Theatre.

Coole Park is a woodland park and a nature reserve of, I understand, 1,000 acres! There are wonderful woodland paths to be explored and there is also a turlough, which is a seasonal lake. In years gone by this was the family home of the...More

The Park is beautiful. We had a great time walking around looking at the scenery. Worth a look if you're in to the outdoors

This park is absolutely beautiful and of course the 'autograph' copper beech tree is a must-see. This tree is huge and the autographs of famous Irish writers/poets/playwrights well worth a photo. The best part of our visit, however, was the delightful exhibition on life in...More

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
