Turlough Park House, Co. Mayo

Thanks so much to @amotherstale_ for her great recommendation for this week’s family friendly spot to visit … Turlough Park House in Co. Mayo.

This is a free day out that has been listed as suitable for newborn to 103 years old!! Sounds pretty suitable for a family day out so!!

It’s located in Turlough, just outside Castlebar. There’s a beautiful lake, a round tower ruin, a forest walk, lovely grassy areas to sit around with a picnic blanket and a new playground which was only officially opened recently.

The National Country Life Museum is there with a cafe inside … where they apparently do great coffee (worth a visit alone!!) Admission to all four sites of the Museum is free, providing such a wonderful, interactive resource and opportunity to introduce kids to parts of the history of their country … there are artefacts, videos explanation and hands-on items for kids.

A wonderful family gem in Co. Mayo, whether you’re local or visiting for holidays!
