Coole Park Sunday Walks Galway

Coole Park Sunday Walks

"The Magic of Coole" is explored at Coole Park Nature Reserve as it plays host to a series of walks for families in the coming weeks.

Sunday walks in Coole Park throughout the Summer will start from the Visitor Centre at 2.30pm and last approximately an hour and a half. All these guided walks are free of charge and do not require any booking.

Walks for the month of June include:
  • Sunday 16th June; ‘The Story of Coole’ - This walk will cover many aspects of Coole, the history, nature and wildlife as well as how it was to live at Coole.
  • Sunday 23rd June; ‘Coole Turlough’ - Discover why the wetlands at Coole are of international importance. Their beauty and mystery has been immortalised by Yeats in his poem ‘The Wild Swans at Coole’.
  • Sunday 30th June; ‘The Gregorys of Coole’ - This historical walk/talk tells of the eventful life and times of the Gregorys of Coole.
The Visitor Centre is open daily from 10.00 to 5.00pm. In the Visitor Centre there is a charming exhibition ‘Me and Nu’ which is based on the childhood memories of Lady Gregory’s granddaughter, Anne. There is also a very informative and evocative half hour audio-visual presentation ‘Lady Gregory of Coole’ on the life of Lady Gregory, the history of Coole and the Irish Literary Revival. Both these attractions are free of charge.
