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.

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.

This park is a busride from Galway to Gort and then a 1km taxi trip. Aged, mature park with wonderful trees, paths, turloughs fringed huge rocky limestone pavements, views and a teashop. Serene, joyful and infused with the spirit of days gone by. Ww loved...More

Response from Ingrid D | Reviewed this property |
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
