Great family day out, loads to see and do, eaning but didn't distract the day, kids had a ball, aged 4 and 2 and wanted to return the next day, boat trip was great and got a bit of history which wouldn't have had otherwise

Boat trip was a bit of a disappointment as we didn't get a full commentary. Would have preferred if it was longer. Kids loved the activities and the house tour was grand.

Went here last week with my family. Great day out. Loads of stuff for the kids to do and very reasonable. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Wasn’t overly impressed with the boat trip as it was quite short but would definitely recommend the park.

After picking up a leaflet for the Dunlewy Centre at the place where we were staying, we headed off bright and early to Dunlewy to go horse riding. It's in a pretty spot, no doubt about that, but there was no horse riding ('not operating...More
