Beautiful little park - very well maintained. Can walk on a paved trail for a couple miles to a lake. Captive deer in the park too along with some nice gardens.

Beautiful park! Such a Gem that we happened upon. Love the history behind this park. Walking the gardens was magical abs then we had amazing tea and pie at the tea shop after. Really a lovely day!

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.

Spacious, well cared for. Loads of walks, peaceful, good coffee shop Fell safe factor when you have small children, but bring some balls, or other mobile play items. No matter how busy Coole Park is it always peaceful.

Easy to find with plenty of parking and well maintained pathways for all to explore. The visitor centre was worth a visit and we enjoyed chatting with the very helpful and informative staff who also gave us details for our visits to Kiltarten Gregory Museum/schoolhouse...More

Lovely walled garden, park and wetlands. Free admission. Great for a walk with (or without) a dog. Don't forget to have a look at the autograph tree with the initials of eg Jack B. Yeats, George Bernard Shaw carved on a huge copper beech.

We loved the quiet garden scenery and peaceful walk, along with the historical connection to the Irish Literary Revival and Abbey Theatre.

There are a number of buses from Galway to Gort, but none to Coole park. Coole is about 2 km from Gort town. If you are a person who walks a lot this will be no problem. Otherwise I would suggest that you get the bus to... More
