A sad history to the disappearance of this family home where artists of all sorts gathered, invited by Lady Gregory. What is left though is the beautiful woods and walled gardens - great for children and picnicking and learning something of the way of life...More

A lovely place to visit and walk around. The cafe there serves delicious cakes and the service is lovely too. Well worth a visit especially if you are a WB Yeats fan. Attached is my picture of Wild Swans at Coole.
