I booked my office in for a party night for our christmas pasty and we had a great time! The food was delicious and came out quickly with added extras! we had no idea we would be served chips, garlic potoatoes or mini mince pies! We even got a glass of champange on arrival. The service is very well thought out instead of having one poor member of staff look after all 20 of us they had staff in blue for drinks, red for bets and black for serving. very efficent! having tablets to take the drink orders was a great touch too as we could see what we wanted without having to move. We had a great view of the track and those who didnt always had view of the screens. The only bad thing i would have to say is that from we were sitting (at the very front near the track) its a really long walk to the bar/smoking area. Apart from that minor detail (it probably helped me work off my dinner) i would recommend this place to anybody and hopefully will be returning next year!

Lovely place to walk the dogs or to bring small children to. Very pretty pond area and play facilities for kids too. The paths are scattered with random fairy doors and hidden gems -really cute. I wish the place was bigger, as it's so pretty and wonderful it would be nice to have more of it.

Rather off the beaten track down a country lane with no signage or parking. Have to park in the lane and then traipse over a field to see the ruins of the castle. An unexpected delight, although not very large. Beautiful views of the surrounding countryside from the environs of the castle.

We hold whiskey tours at the visitor centre adjacent to Martin's pub. a mere 100m from the Cooley distillery. Our tours come highly recommended and comprise of a very fact filled hands on explanation of the whiskey making process and even a coopering demonstration. We offer a tasting class for the group and anyone interested can taste the 4 main cooley whiskeys.
Not the most amazing venue but what a thorough talk on how Whisky is distilled. Our guide knew about every step in the process and was a good speaker. From making barrels to explaining the phrase, "Angels Share". The whisky tasting was interesting too!

A great way to pass an afternoon, with Exhibitions on; Sir Francis Leopold McClintock, Louths' industrial legacy, the Archaeology of Louth, the Mesolithic period to the end of the Iron Age and the medieval period to the present day. It also has an exhibit on the WW1 16th (Irish) and 36th (Ulster) divisions.
The first floor holds William of Orange's jacket worn at the Battle of the Boyne.
Also an interesting piece outside relating to Thomas Coulter.
Finally a new exhibit on the 1916 rising.

On a positive note I will return again over the coming weeks as I believe it is worth it.
Unfortunately, very little effort has been made by the Louth Co Co to ensure the site is fitted with info boards. There is a bin which was obviously not used by the local youngsters with their take out cans and food....
I was left Googling on my phone for info about the place which I can see is very special to a good amount of people considering the offerings on the Prayer Tree. The well is full of leaves though that didn't stop me scouping out holy water and pouring over part of my camera....which still works fine... :-)
What was most disappointing was the amount of food takeaway cartons and empty beer cans strewn about the car park and the fields. The views are stunning across the valley but my photos include beer cans which is not good.... Luckily, the animals that dump the rubbish do respect the graveyard itself and that is a cornucopia of interesting headstones and history (if you have Google!!)

This church is well worth your time to see. The stained glass and ceilings are beyond beautiful. We toured it in a Sunday afternoon, between masses. The congregation was very amicable and kind when we arrived, between services. They encouraged us to go in and enjoy the surroundings and take all the pictures we wanted!

Visited for the toddler hour on a rainy Saturday and had a ball. Trampolines great fun and loved that there was a special time for smaller kids. The play area in the reception is immaculate and something different. Free of charge and no pressure from...MoreWhat a fantastic review thank you so much Siobhan! Delighted to hear you got on so well while visiting us. Hope you have been back to us since and many times more!

I would advise both lads and lasses alike to skip this particular dolmen for two important reasons. First, your GPS will undoubtedly take ye to a private road on the opposite side of the dolmen sans a car park. The petrol wasted before figuring out the proximity of the hotel to this historic site will not be worth the effort. Secondly, when ye have finally figured things out, the approach to the dolmen will require donning a hard helmet and possibly some body armor. Walking between two fairways whilst golf balls buzz by your head and other important anatomical parts, ye will be disappointed when the final destination has eventually been gained. Poulnabrone and Browne's Hill Dolmen would be much more worthwhile. The capstone at Browne's Hill verges on the colossal. If ye still desire to check out this dolmen, mind your sanity and personal safety. Fore!!
