Deer graze right beside you, periodically glancing at you incredulously. Routes of various complexity and length. A great place for enjoying nature, beauty, complete Idyll.
Tourist leaflets in most major languages.Good map wall displays of all the different seasons walks,cross country tracks etc.Good displays down stairs all about Finish life most hands on for the kids. Knowledgble staff on the tourist information desk,nothing is a problem. Small shop selling National park branded items.Great restaurant / cafe sandwiches soft and hot drinks.Hot lunch circa 13 euros soup breads hot drinks desert all included.Spent 3hrs here.Recommend taking a sledge you can get a good couple of 6-800m runs back to the village.
