Such a great find. Travel along the Boyne Valley Drive and look out for the Loughcrew Cairns signs. You will find loughcrew on that road. It has a little of everything. Great open demesne. Art and sculptures placed around. Beautiful flowers, water features and hedges. Lots of info signs. Activities center for those more adventurous! Coffee shop is light and airy and the food fresh & healthy.
Not good. If you are coeliac avoid at all costs. Despite asking at least three times if gluten free bread is available and explaining that I am coeliac and not gluten free through choice, I was served regular brown bread which - fortunately - I did not eat We queried if the ham was crumbed or plain and were told - quite rudely - that it is baked. We asked for water with our lunch and were served tiny glasses with about 4 fluid ounces in each. The table was wiped over and all the crumbs were pushed onto my daughter's lap. The table was still greasy and smeared after this. The food is totally overpriced and with the exception of one young staff member the rest of the staff were rude and disinterested. We stood at the counter for at least 5 minutes waiting to pay and were simply ignored until the young staff member eating her lunch interrupted her break to take our money and apologised for the delay. My luunch was not gluten free although is should have been as all the ingredients were naturaly gluten free. There must have been some cross comtanination preparing it. This resulted in me becoming very ill on the drive back to Dublin. Fortunately, my daughter was able to drive after this. I have been sick from this experience now for three days. There is obviously no proper staff training programme both for dealing with food allergies and general customer service. I can't remember when I had such an awful meal. Finally, when I complained as we were leaving I was told that gluten free bread is always available and kept in the freezer. A truly awful experience.
We visited yesterday with a seven year old. Had a nice visit but could be more for younger children. Swing and slide that is near the coffee shop is is for toddlers and not very inviting.Play area with swings, slides and climbing frame would be lovely and perhaps a small maze. Staff were lovely and helpful and as it was a fine day the gardens looked lovely.
“Can you wave at the camera the next time you're coming down the zip wire” Situated near lough crew cairns the adventure center is located in the gardens of Loughcrew house, once the home of Oliver Plunkett. I took the family as there was a deal going on at the center for activities. The kids loved the zip wire. There was a great collection of cakes in the cafe for a treat afterwards. #ramblingstampcollectors
Treasure hunt is really for young people but overall we had a good time there
