Walks ranging from 10min to 90min with very little hills. Beautiful scenery and history to be enjoyed by young and old.

Great place for a hike and a bit of literary enlightenment. Stroll the grounds of Lady Gregory's home and learn the history of this lovely park! Be sure not to miss the Autograph tree!

This is a lovely park just a few miles outside Gort. The cafe is very expensive but the walks etc are free. Recommended.

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
