Found lough key to be a rip off in every way... To get into the playground is €20 which is nothing special..To do the lough key experience is€15 and is over before you know it... To park the car is€4..to go on a boat trip for one hour was €42.. Luckily the air we breath there was free.... Maybe if... More

We were there for a day trip in July 2015 and it did not disappoint. Beautiful scenery with lots to do and see including a boat tour of the lake, guided walks and other activities for young and old alike. A thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Pleasant and historical place to visit , the experience starts when you drive in to the grounds of the estate and in to the vast open space , there is just a nice vibe about this place, from its long meandering lake side walk to the boat rides to the island ,to the highest levels of the old king estate...

Went camping at lough key forest park with my wife and three kids for two days on the 18th and 19th of July 2015. Got there at 3pm, sign on door "gone to lunch back in 30 min" not a good start. All previous campsites we have been to have electrical points. Lough Key only has electrical points for caravans.... More

Camped here in July with the family, we had camped here 5 yrs ago before this but found the campsite was very wet and drainage work needed to be undertaking. Drainage work has dried it up a lot. Fly and midges were a pain but guess this is to be expected in a forest. There are plenty of activities to... More

Lough Key Forest Park, loved it! Lots for kids to do: playground, boat trip, walks around the National park and good facilities. Trails, restaurant and great location. Lots for older kids too there is Zip Line and challenge activities.

We booked a campervan pitch at Lough Key for three nights, but ended up staying for a week - it was that good! The camping site is ideally situated to cycle or walk in the forest, to Zipit (great fun, but must be booked online, in advance) or the main park centre, which has Boda Borg puzzle adventure (also great...

What a beautiful location. Stunning location. Great facilities bike hire zip lines but highlight was bora berg. Indoor challenge games was just great for all weather's. Only downside was the restaurant. Only ready made sandwich were not able to make a plain ham sandwich with no butter. Organisation of restaurant is disgraceful. 45 minutes for ready made sandwich and soup... More

Plenty to do ruins of the old house, and tree canopy walk very interesting, loads to do in visitor centre too. Activity centre in the grounds with extra paid activities and a lake with ducks. But as for the camping I'm not interested as there no barrier anyone can walk in around the campsite they can even enter without going... More
