Lough Key Forest Park
There are kid (and big kids) things to do in the Forrest Park which is quite near (more or less across the lake). To get there go left at my gate keep right at first "T" junction cross Knockvicar bridge and about one KM on you will see on your left a gate house shaped like an old three-penny coin…
A beautiful Forest Park with a lake. It is possible to book into the adventure center, packed with activities that would be suitable for children or teenagers. There are a number of Islands on the lake which can be visited by boat.
“Beautiful mining centre with hosted walks into the mines. Great walks, beautiful scenery and only around 18Km from White Cottage. ”
“A great programme of events. A small intimate theatre for plays and gigs. A beautiful shop with collections of works by local artists. And a lovely little bar to boot.....Well worth a visit”
“Traditional Lunch and Dinner Menu. Reasonable pricing and fast friendly service.”
“In addition to local artisan shops, there are a variety of supermarkets in Carrick on Shannon including Aldi, Lidl, Tesco. There is also a Farmers Market in the Town every Thursday”
