What People Say About Us
fantastic well run family day out.
Visited Lough Key Forest Park on our holidays in July whilst on a Shannon cruiser and we had a wonderful time. There is so much to do at Lough Key. We did a tree top walk taking in the tunnels around Rockingham House. Such a interesting history lesson. We rented bikes and took a cycle around the forest and woodland near the lake - the kids loved exploring. Most of all we were super impressed by all the staff we met at the various kiosks at the park. Everyone was really helpful and friendly. The lunches at the food truck were delicious and we were totally able to relax in the vast outdoor space - especially since we had really great weather also. Would really recommend Lough Key and nearby Boyle where we did some paddle boarding. Amazing place - in the heart of Ireland.
