Castle Coole opens occasionally, however it is surrounded by fabulous parkland and is a great place to take a gentle stroll or enjoy a park run. The Estate Tea Room is worth checking out for refreshments too.
Florencecourt House is open for tours and in the holiday season it is recommended that you call in advance. House tours are impressive and if you have the time to wander through the gardens and extensive estate trails this is definitely a great day out.
