The estate is named for Lough Coole (from Irish Gaelic cúil, 'seclusion'), a lake surrounded by the Killynure hills.

  • Fantastic natural walks. Great canoeing. Historical castle. Nice coffee shop
  • Too expensive to get in unless you joint the National Trust. The house is large and the tour takes you into the ground floor where the servents worked. The kitchens, wine cellar etc. The house has large grounds but no gardens, just grass. There's a lake with a walk around it and other walks through the trees that have lots of bluebells in the spring. There's a cafe and toilets and a play park for children. There's a place to tie your dog to with a water tap and bowl for your dog if your in the toilets or cafe and plenty of free poop scoop bags and bins.
  • Great place for a day out. Been to some good events here as well
  • This is one of my favorite places to go and be I love the cafe fresh food and cakes very helpful staff and nice shop and great house tour with a long wonderful walk and great for children for days out and great for dogs also
  • Lovely place, very interesting with excellent guides, both inside and out. Good place for a walk as well.
