The Strokestown Park and National Famine Museum is a must to visit to understand Ireland's potato famine, how it started, and how it could have been prevented. This sorrow effected Ireland for hundreds of years.

The woodland walk was a very pleasant starter with little faces and fairey doors in the trees to interest the kids.

We visit the café on the grounds of this historic house regularly. The café (and shop) staff are always friendly. It's a great place to do a pit-stop if you're travelling from Dublin to Sligo. It's a no-frills café in the best possible way. The...More

The museum is set in the grounds of a huge stately home, lots of green area and space. that said I did not see anyone eating on the grounds. I do recall seeing tables in the car park by the entrance or it may perhaps have been benches only. I think your best bet is to call them and ask; the museum or the Strokestown House next door.
