    Oh my! If you want to immerse yourself in Irish countryside culture this little museum is a MUST SEE! Charlie Finneran is simply priceless and his collection is as well. Totally worth the admission (€8)

    Really enjoyed our visit to the farm... my 10 year old son laughed and smiled throughout. 3 bags of food given on way in to feed the animals, who are very friendly. Plenty of animals to feed and pet...goats, emu's, geese, donkey, various chick's, got to cuddle rabbits. Also monkeys, llamas, deer, wallabies and more. Plenty of shelter so no need to worry about rain...we had torrential showers. Lots of great play area's indoor and outdoor. Coffee shop. Highly recommend and would return. We spend 2.5hrs there but could have stayed all day.

    Very knowledgeable guide who gave loads of information about local walks etc.
    Test you strength and lift a sword. Lots of games for the younger ones and interactive information.

    BAY sports was very well organised this year you had to pre book for your time slot. This year the they must have got more wet suits as they where dry. They also had outside showers if they where solar powered that would even be better. There was a coffee dock & a take away van.

    We had a lovely family day out in fernhill garden centre yesterday, the staff were extremely helpful and gave great advise on our plants. There is a very happy atmosphere around the place with cheerful music and friendly staff.The kids loved the play area as we enjoyed a coffee in the restaurant. Best of luck with the opening of the new gift shop, I can’t wait to visit again!

    Easy, flat looped walk. Good starting point is at the quays by the castle. The trail runs mostly along the Shannon but loops around inland by a small canal.

    Brilliant that you can just turn up with no need to book. A very relaxed experience with lots of information along the way.
