  • We went here for the day, it is very educational and entertaining, it is relaxing to see the birds and wildlife. The cafe is very nice too and has friendly staff! 
  • Relaxed with great views over the Lough. great for children to visit in the woods and amazing variety of birds in Strangeford Lough. 
  • Amazing day at Castle Espie. Kids were so tired after searching swamp for fairy doors they nearly fell asleep in the cafe while gulping down the most amazing hot chocolate in the cafe. A great day out...  more »

  • A great place to take young kids - Feeding the ducks is always a favourite! Plenty to see and do in a beautiful area. Although we haven't yet purchased, a yearly membership would be a good deal for frequent visitors. Cafe / visitors centre is bright and clean. Well worth a visit!
  • Experienced a disappointing visit to castle espie. Not a lot to see and although opening hours till 5... staff start locking gates after half 4. Young kids playing in soft play area (2 and under) and staff member closed windowed shutter door leaving them in darkness as it was coming up to 5. Very disappointed and Overpriced for what it is.
  • Great for family days out. There's a good cafe (which you can get into without paying the entry fee), a small soft play for rainy days, and a couple of excellent play parks for children of all ages.
  • We love Castle Espie for the kids. They love feeding the ducks playing in the soft play area. Have a membership....worth every penny x
  • Eco site for lovers of wildfowl and the outdoors in general. The cafe has been upgraded and have lovely food and really nice coffee.
