Coole Park Galway
Family Friendly Indoor Outdoor Activity Toilets Parking Restaurant Bar Café
The heritage town of Gort can be found in south County Galway, about 37km south of Galway city on the N18. Just outside the town of Gort, is where you will find the beautiful Coole Park, formerly the estate of Lady Gregory but now a 1,000-acre nature reserve. As you stroll around Coole Park you will see different types of animals and mammals in their natural environments. Coole Park is also an important sanctuary for birds especially winter waterfowl. At Coole Park you will also find a very informative and educational Visitor’s Centre, which is well worth a visit. Here you can see audio-visual presentations about Lady Gregory herself and you will also see some exhibitions telling the story and history of Coole Park.

The park is open all year round and there is free admission to the grounds, so it is a great day out for the family. There is also a restaurant on site if you want to enjoy a wide selection of traditional Irish dishes.
