Loughcrew Estate & Gardens are full of history, beauty, fantasy, and atmosphere making the visit a magical experience. 
Loughcrew Gardens are a breath-taking spectacle from 17th and 19th century landscape and pleasure gardens. Take a walk-through centuries of garden and landscape fantasy. The central area of approximately six acres includes a lime avenue, extensive lawns and terraces, a magnificent herbaceous border and physic border. Within the gardens stand a medieval motte and St. Oliver Plunkett’s family church and Tower House.
If you would rather, there is also a longer lake walk around Lough Creeve. There is some beautiful scenery to be taken in along the way, as it goes right past Loughcrew House. With extra treats along the way as the walk itself takes in different forest and rockery walks and also has a fairy ring. This walk starts and finishes at the Limetree Coffee Shop

Children’s Day Out: The Loughcrew Fairy Trail
The Fairy Trail is an exciting interactive sensory trail which gets children exploring Loughcrew Gardens and it is now open all year round!

To complete the treasure hunt style trail, they will get an activity booklet and map and will have to solve clues and answer questions in order to get to the next part of it. It will get your children using their imaginations and embracing the outdoors and they may even spot some fairies as they explore! It is a great activity for grandparents and parents to enjoy too.

Be sure to pick up your children’s activity booklet from the ticket office and spend a lovely day having fun as a family. Fairy houses, giant ants and a fairy forest await!
