Errigal View Pet Zoo

Errigal View Pet Zoo is a new attraction for families to enjoy a great day out. With animals, birds and much more there is lots to do and see.  Situated behind An Chúirt Hotel in Gweedore a visit here is a must. You can stroll amongst the animals or take a nice walk along the old railway track; the choice is yours.

Both educational and fun you can see many unusual animals’ close-up and even feed a few. Then as the children play in the adventure playground, enjoy a cup of coffee and a snack, or try your hand at pitch and putt.

Dunlewey Centre / Ionad Cois Locha

A visit to The Dunlewey Centre / Ionad Cois Locha is a fantastic day for children and families of all ages. Step back in time and take our cottage tours and learn the history of the area and see live demonstrations of carding spinning and weaving. It’s an educational experience for all the family.

We have several play ¬areas which include paddloes, canoes, bouncy castle, climbing wall, rodeo bull and our water zorb balls which have proved exceptionally popular with both children and adults alike. After re-energizing, why not enjoy a train ride along the lakeside, taking in the beautiful scenery or perhaps relax with a boat trip. Check their facebook page or website for opening times www.dunleweycentre.comContact +353 (0) 74 95 31699
