Lovely area to bring a picnic and go for a walk. Such a beautiful wood.

This a most pleasurable Stop. The home of Lady Gregory, which once offered Hospitality to some of Irish Literary Giants. The House is longer there, but the grounds and the feeling of History nurture your spirit.

...Under the October twilight, the water mirrors a still sky. Upon the brimming water among the stones are nine and fifty swans". When my parents started bringing us here as kids, I didn't appreciate what a fabulous place Coole Park was, but I do now, and my sister brings her kids here a lot. The walks are leisurely, the trees are majestic, the water is a hidden treasure. It is sad that the house was knocked down but the Coole Park website is excellent and you can see pictures of the house as it was. When I was younger, there was no railings around the Autograph Tree but it is good now that it is being preserved better. The cafe is a very welcome haven, and it is a relief (!) to have toilets available. The picnic tables are a useful addition.

The scenery is spectacular with lake views and lovely woodland walks. We spotted wild deer and enjoyed reading Yeats works on the stone slabs.
