The Rockingham Trail
Lough Key Experience
This guided tour will bring you through the original servant tunnels of the 19th Century Rockingham House to the top of the Moylurg viewing tower providing 360-degree views of Lough Key Park and Estate.
Then for a unique experience, you will meander higher and higher up into the trees on our Tree Canopy Trail, (the only one in Ireland!). This is a stilted timber and steel construction, which gently rises 9mtrs above the park floor and stretches for 300mtrs giving you a bird’s eye view of the parklands and islands on the lake. The tour gives you an insight into how life worked when Rockingham House was a functional family home. It also gives you a brief history of the estate and its owners. You also get to pass by some beautiful specimen trees whilst on the canopy and learn about the flora and fauna which inhabit the parklands.
