I was on may way to Galway and we thought we would stop off at Coole Park. This is a beautiful place, brilliant garden and the autograph tree is a really treat. If you are after a nice walk then this is definitely a place you should go.

After an invigorating walk through Coole Park, I had a wonderful lunch made by Concepta . She does make the most delicious apple and blackberry crumble. It is worth the hike! She makes other things as well. I had the roasted vegetable and smoked cheese sandwich. It is the best food around Gort by a long shot.

Came to here by chance after an OPW worker from another site told us about it. What a hidden gem. The gardens are stunning and so well maintained. The amount of songbirds there was astonishing and we wondered, concernly, how the proposed development of the extension of the Motorway would affect this beautiful site.
The tree was amazing and really is a hidden treasure. Even the children aged 15 and 11 were fascinated by the history of the place. How sad the house is not here now anymore, another sad effect from Irish History, but the converted stable building into a very well worth told story of the history of Coole Park was brought alive by Audio visual made it interesting to all. And free!!! so welcome in our current economic times. The tea rooms made a welcome break before leaving the area. The drinks were comparably priced and the delicious cakes went down a treat.

If you are. Poet and Yeats buff it is amazing. If, like me, you only know his name, it is a great learning experience . Such a beautiful extensive park that would have been stunning on a day without the rain we had. The paths and the tress were stunning and the wold flowers that grew under the trees were gorgeous. We could have easily spent all day there but had to move on? An amazing place and all for free! Lovely place if you have more time to sit and tKe in the beauty.do not drive by even if like us you only have an hour .....it was very memorable.
