Fun for all ages!!Whatever you choose it is the perfect location to do as much or as little as you like!Boda Borg questing is a great way to spend a few fun filled hours with family or friends. After entering the weather-independent house only teamwork, ingenuity, trial and error will allow you to survive the challenges.The Lough Key Experience is an engaging audio tour, directing you through 19th century tunnels to the top of the Moylurg Tower and over the Tree Canopy Trail.The Adventure Play Kingdom is a purpose built outdoor children’s play area providing stimulating and entertaining activities and equipment suitable for a variety of ages and abilities.Enjoy the stunning views & homemade cooking from the Lough Key Café and outdoor deck or browsing for a memento in our Gift Shop.Thinking of spending a few days experiencing the delights that North Roscommon and the surrounding area have to offer? Why not book a pitch for your tent or caravan in the Lough Key Caravan and Camping Park, open from Easter to September.

There was so much to do and see. The children loved the playground and the tunnels especially were very exciting. The history was fascinating and everywhere you looked there was something interesting to see. The only issue we encountered was that the shop area was...More

We took an impromptu trip to Lough Key on a lovely sunny Sunday and were not disappointed. There's not a massive amount of parking at a charge of about €4 or €6 per day (free if you spend €20 in the Visitor Centre) We took...More

It is a beautiful spot but not very well run to be honest. A lot of younger staff. The restaurant food was lovely and good value but the staff were appalling. I do appreciate that whilst we were there it was very busy but got...More

Gorgeous setting by the lake. Great forest walks. Lots of activity for kids. Reception/cafe a bit chaotic but good day out.

The Lough Key experience is fully wheel chair accessible and if visiting try wheelchair orienteering, fully designed to suit the less mobile visitors. Well worth a visit, so come along and enjoy yourself.

The boat stops in the park and you can walk but they do hire bicycles, electric bicycles and segways 😊
