Great place for picnics and walks. Watch the beautiful swans and ducks glide across the shimmering lake. A place steeped in history and archaeology; the largest and oldest stone circle in Ireland, megalithic tombs, an interactive exhibition area that includes guided tours, something for kids, a selection of books, including children's and tea or coffee to unwind after your visit. Well worth it!
Lovely morning hike along the trails with the locals. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the view from atop the hill.
It's really picturesque here. We went to the fairy garden and for a short walk to tree and ancient wall. There is TOILETS, a small shop ( not what I would call a cafe) and museum
This is a really great heritage centre. I learned a lot while I was there and I am determined to return. Both staff and guides were helpful and pleasant.
Not very buggy friendly. Couldn't really do any of the walks around the lough. Staff were nice though.
