There's still plenty to see and do at Castle Coole during the autumn and winter seasons. Visit the grounds from 10am to 4pm and enjoy pleasant walks on the estate while the seasons change. Dogs are welcome so please bring along your pooch pals too.

We're getting into the Christmas spirit with our Christmas concerts, and Santa Claus will be making Castle Coole his home once again from the 13-21 December. Make sure to check out our events guide for more information, or contact 028 6632 8249.
