Website says this is open all year round but it's not really. Visited on Sunday and we were told the only activities available were the walks and pet farm. The walks were flooded and pet farm consists of three sheep, three goats and some poultry. Probably fine during the summer for picnic etc but not this time of year.

Perfect spot for our group's Christmas Gathering. Dave the owner was the perfect host and arrange a drive out throughout historic Meath in our Land Rovers around the Boyne valley. It is an ideal spot for family's planning a summer camping trip .Family run & family friendly we will be back

Beautiful surroundings and nice walks. BBQ and picnic tables all round the lake and fishing rods for hire. Lots for the children to do including pony rides and large bouncy castle area. There's a zip wire and high climbing wall for older children but lots for the little ones as well. You can go out on the lake in swan... More

was there recently with 3 grandchildren. the toilets were a disgrace and not clean at all. the floors and toilets were not hygienic at all and would really put me off bringing young children again. expected a lot better and cleaner, very disappointed.

Sunny day, so we decided to take the 3 kids (9, 8, 5) here. €2.50 per person including adults admission fee and bar a small playground and a small Forrest walk everything was so expensive. 3 of us went on a zip line that lasts 25 seconds and that alone was 21 euro. We had to queue for ages for... More

A Disappointing day out, over priced with very poor facilities & unhelpful, ignorant staff member who appeared have no knowledge of any of the attractions, would not recommend.

Craggy Island is alive and well in Meath! everything in dire need of an overhaul, just a pure rip off. The loos are a disgrace. Hire of a kids fishing rod €15. After paying €10 entrance fee.Should be renamed neck like a jockeys undercarraige lake. The only upside, it was so bad we nearly died laughing! dissapointed we didn't see... More

Had a lovely day here last week. Weather was great which helped. Staff were ok, some were a bit more interested in catching up with their own stories and ignoring the small customers. My daughter waited for 5 minutes whilst I queued for the one toilet available. She waited whilst the women were chatting and then she waited whilst they... More

Great place....especially if you get good weather,which we did.staff were friendly and helpful.its much busier than when we've visited in the past so my only issues would be an upgrade on the toilet facilities and a longer train trip for €2 it's very short......literally about 4 mins.Everything else......super!!
