Lough Key Forest Park encompasses a cluster of unique attractions offering gentle leisurely pursuits or energetic activities - do as much or as little as you like!

Spend hours experiencing the quests in Boda Borg, a unique activity to Ireland, suitable for adults and children over 7 years. To survive the Quests you need to employ different skills – it’s all about teamwork! Solving one challenge opens the door to the next, and another blast of curiosity and laughter. Teams of three to five required.

Watch the younger children discover a magical land of innovative play equipment in the Adventure Play Kingdom – a colourful and safe environment that will keep kids entertained for hours.

Allow yourself to be taken back in time on the ‘Lough Key Experience’ as you are self-guided through the old 19th century servant tunnels.

Be blown away by the views from the Moylurg Tower and experience Ireland’s only Tree Canopy Walk as it gently rises above the forest floor.

Other activities in the park include the Zipit Forest Adventures, an aerial obstacle course through the trees with zip lines; guided boat tours and also rowing boats for hire; electric bike trails with bikes for hire; and Woodland Segway with fun glides through the park and a Mini Jeep Safari.

Revive in The Lakeside Café, where you can enjoy some sweet and savoury delights overlooking the beautiful vista of Castle Island and Lough Key.
