We are always on hand to answer your questions online, by phone or in person. Here are the answers to some of the questions we are most frequently asked.

The short answer is “Yes!”

While dogs are very welcome in the park there are 2 exceptions, they are not permitted  within the café or terrace, nor are they welcome in the Falconry Centre. Also, please remember, this is a ‘Leave No Trace’ park, so be sure to bring plenty of bags because you’ll be bringing your dog mess home with you! Also you will find water bowls for dogs throughout the park. Dogs were very important in ancient Ireland for hunting and protection. Fionn MacCumhaill, for example, had two dogs, Bran (Raven) and Sceólang (Survivor).

Most people find 90 minutes to two hours is plenty, while others stay longer. With so much to see and to take in, a lot of people come back to us again and again. On top of all the history and learning, it’s also a very beautiful woodland walk in its own right!
Bathrooms are located beside the entrance to the visitor centre, within the café and in the park itself, between sites 10 and 11.

Changing Places Toilets are there to help people with disabilities to enjoy places that would otherwise be inaccessible to them, by providing the equipment or facilities they need to do things other people can do without even having to think. Learn more at
