There are a lot of trees cut down for a nature reserve, which is always sad to see. Trail signs missing in a few places but overall a very nice place for a walk. The lake is lovely. Enjoyed it.

loved every minute of our walk around Coole Park - fantastic scenery & well signed walkway. Pity the coffee shop was closed as it was off season. Will definately pay a return visit

Crisp Autumn day, clear skies, a walk down the paths, through the colourful leaves to a picturesque lake - absolutely beautiful. Perfect for couples, families,dog walking, picnics or just catching a moment of calm to yourself in the midst of nature. What a gorgeous location.

Coole is lovely for a stroll in the mornings. I always go "off track" and walk along the turlough (flood permitting!) and take in the sights down along there, love when the swans are there, so peaceful. Tea Room is usually good although it is...More

Hello is there bus service from Galway city to Gort Coole Park?

Response from Ingrid D | Reviewed this property |
