The park has a few designated parking bays for disabled drivers. There are two trails to follow. Most of the trails are made from hard surface. (paved or hard gravel) “The Family Trail” is an easy 1.75 km walk, taking you past the deer pen, the site of the house and into the walled garden to see the Autograph Tree. The 4.5 km “Seven Woods Trail” connects the different woods made famous in poetry by W.B. Yeats. Depending on the season, you might see bluebells and violets, jays and treecreepers, red squirrels and stoats, butterflies and dragonflies, or swans and other wetland birds.
Coole Park is located just off the N18, 3km north-west of the heritage town of Gort in Co. Galway, which is in the west of Ireland.
