Places to go
The Argory is a Neo-classical house set in 130 hectares of woodland and water and is perfect for getting young ones excited about history. Let’s face it: it’s not easy to truly take much in through books alone. The old Irish gentry house hasn’t changed a bit since 1900, so you and your family can really get a feel for how life in the early 20th century would have been.
If you would like to take the children on an excursion where they can look at and pet animals that they would not normally find at home, Annaginny Farm Park is a great choice. You can get up close to llamas, alpacas, wallabies, swans, mice and all sorts of bird and fish species. Once you have made your way around all of the little creatures, you can enjoy a BBQ and your young ones can pass some time on the huge bouncy castle.
For the nature lovers out there, Peatlands Park is a divine reserve that offers more than 16 km of breathtaking paths full of vegetation and wildlife. A stroll around the 10,000-year-old peat is sure to make you feel tired, so you’ll be looking forward to checking into a luxury B&B at the end of the day!
