We came across this site by chance while driving around the Irish Loop. It is a beautiful setting, some amazing wildlife, very helpful, friendly staff and it's free?

It is an easy beautiful walk with such superb scenery and lots of wild animals and birds to see. I advise to take your time so that you can see as much wild animals as possible.. some may be hiding at times.

This is a 3k boardwalk trail amounts some stunningly wild landscapes. The anamals that are kept her are mostly short stays; just until they get better. They do have some long stay anamals but only if they are unable to go back to the wild,
