Corkagh Park is a beautiful resource and is right across the road from The Green Isle Hotel. The park stretches over three hundred acres from the Naas Road all the way into Clondalkin Village. It is a very scenic area steeped in history and is very popular among families and tourists.
There is a visitor centre in the park along with a very popular pet farm. The farm was an initiative by the park’s committee to try and gain more visitors to the park. The farm provides homes a number of birds, farm animals and pets and it is hoped that they will continue to increase the number of animals to progress the project with the DSPCA also donating animals to the farm. Entry to the pet farm is free for all visitors, ideal for families and is open all year round.
Corkagh House and Rose Gardens are located within the park, the house originally started out as a small farmhouse in 1650, years later a large wing was added to the existing buildings. The house was impressive and during its heyday it contained ten bedrooms, a library, dining room, drawing room, study and an anteroom. The exterior of the house contained a rose garden as well as a tennis court and a ditch to prevent livestock from passing through the grounds.
If you fancy some fishing while staying with us there is a fishery in Corkagh Park that works on a “put and take” scheme with the project hoping to promote angling in South County Dublin and to appeal to a greater number of people. There is a tackle shop at the fishery where rods can be hired as well as a coffee shop and an outdoor seating area. The park also has a playground, picnic area and cycle paths.
As the hotel is so close to the park it is the perfect place to spend a few hours while on your break in Dublin.
