Laugh Gur Is a great day out. The visitor centre is great and has a lovely cafe. Definitely worth a visit. You should make sure to have enough time to visit the grounds especially if you are visiting on a fine day

Great for a walk around at any time of the year if the weather is any way favorable, from the 100 steps and the great views to all the benches where one can sit down..
