    Hi all. Thinking of bringing the kids here tomorrow during mid term. Does anyone know if they are open? Are there walks etc you can do and is it easy to navigate with younger kids? Haven't been there before

    It's jammers at the weekends so just expect lots of cars even midweek.

    We drove to Coole Park on Sunday and turned around without going in as it was so busy. Cars parked all along the road leading to the park, never mind in the car park itself.

    I'm sure it wouldn't be anywhere near that busy mid week though.

    Weekends aren't a problem just go around or before 10am.

    The road leading in is very misleading.
    There are always cars parked there at the weekend.
    I've been twice in the last month, both times on a Sunday, at around 3, and always got parking inside the main car parks.
    First time, plenty of spots, despite cars been parked on the road leading in.
    Second time, loads of cars parked on the road leading in, but only had to circle a car park twice, before a spot became available.

    We headed in for 9 this morning and it was quite idyllic. Kids loved it. Just dodged the rain. Loads of parking even when we were leaving. The maps were really handy - thanks for the tips

    Portumna park is a very good alternative too
