Lough Key Forest Park
Lough Key Forest & Activity Park is Coillte’s flagship visitor destination for fun activities with spectacular views, exuberant wildlife, historic buildings and multiple islands. After major re-development with the historic Rockingham estate as the backdrop, a landmark cluster of unique attractions has been opened to serve the needs of todays visitor with a new lakeside Centre providing an ideal base for gentle leisurely activities or more energetic pursuits in the Park.
The ‘Lough Key Experience’ will take you on an engaging audio journey through the history, flora and fauna of the Park using the 19th century underground tunnels, the refurbished Moylurg viewing tower and a contemporary Tree Canopy Walk, the first of its kind in Ireland. This 300m long creation of timber and steel gently rises 9m above the woodland floor offering an engaging ‘birds eye’ view of nature as it meanders through the treetops offering panoramic views of the island-studded lake.
The innovative weather independent Boda Borg is a unique Swedish concept containing fun-filled activities, imaginative puzzles and enjoyable tasks but no instructions! Once you enter the challenging two-storey Boda Borg only teamwork using countless different skills, ingenuity, trial and error will allow you to progress from room to room.
The outdoor Adventure Play Kingdom is an enclosed and stimulating play area for children with towers, slides, climbing frames, roundabouts, swings, puzzles and other innovative play equipment providing hours of entertainment for a variety of ages and abilities.
You can also stay in our Caravan and Camping Park for a few nights and take time to explore the 350 hectare estate from its 19th century parkland with majestic trees, follies, bridges and canals to the numerous walks and trails through the native woodlands, Bog Garden and Coillte forests.
