General information

Castle Coole - Lake Walk Trail

Take a pleasant, gentle walk around the tranquil Lough Coole, spotting wildlife and glimpses of the mansion house on the way.


Starting from the visitor car park, take the path on the right past the play-park. This path passes the site of the original Queen Anne house. At the boat house, turn right and follow the path around the lake.

Shortly after the boat house, a gravel path to your left reaches the shore of the Lough. Take a stroll down see if you can spot our resident swans before returning to the path and continuing your walk.

At this point, catch glimpses of views of the house across the lake. Continue on the path, taking a left at the main exit road and another once that reaches the drive. Continue on up the hill to return to the visitor car-park.

* Please note that National Trust entrance pricing applies for this walk.
