The staff were very kind and helpful. They reassured my anxious 5 year old and encouraged him to sit on the pony. He loved the trek (laps of the field), as did his big sister, so I had to rebook later in the week. Thank you for your kindness.

Stopped off after trip up on the funicular railway. Waited for 15 minutes then got a table outside. Soup and soda bread was gorgeous and the kids burger was fantastic.

Family with three teenagers absolutely loved the experience. Very wet due to the overnight rain but that made it even more fun with deep puddles. Would recommend it !

Peaceful once you get out of the commercial areas. Doesn't seem to be state owned, so a wee bit commercialized. Still tranquil or active depending what you want to do.

We came for the quad biking but ended up walking with the dogs as well and eating in the visitors centre. This is one of my favourite places in the world. Great views, great food, great entertainment and lovely, lovely people.
