McMahon/Clare Lake Park

Reviewed By Lilian D - Newry, United Kingdom

This is a lovely park and very geared up for youngsters keeping them occupied with the Giant's belongings all around the park as they walk. We did the full walk and really enjoyed it. We had no children with us but thought it was great that children could feed the ducks etc.

Gilligans Bar

Reviewed By M-P7 - Galway

Took two friends here for lunch after it being recommended to me and I was sorry I did. Not a bit welcoming and very cold. We were shown to a table by a waitress; it was only set for two and she didn't add the extra setting. We perused the menu and spent our time playing 'spot the errors'. Whom ever did out the menu would want to visit spec savers; the amount of errors is unacceptable for a professional establishment. Spending so much time putting leaflets around the town advertising lunch, I would seriously put the time into getting the menu right, jazzing up the Seating area and make sure that the venue is ready for service before lunch. I won't be back.

Reviewed By TinyCoffee - Kiltimagh, Ireland

The selection of products are of a great variety. My personal favourite (The Ducks) are honestly a lovely addition that doesn't interfere with the traditional integrity of the shop. i admire the variety of bags available, and I cannot wait to get a new bag in there soon! Also: The owner.... (Noreen I think) is honestly such a dote and is a fantastic employee.

Shine Boutique

Reviewed By Hotelspy - Mayo, Ireland

This is a hidden gem in a great small town in the West of Ireland. Shine Boutique has 2 floors of fashion, accessories handbags and little trinkets. I was just passing through the town and was delightfully surprised. Not alone can you pick up lots of great pieces for your wardrobe you can also accessorize! Well worth a visit if you are in the area! Highly recommend it and the girls there couldn't do enough. Lovely to see these types of boutiques alive and well in the heart of the West of Ireland.

The Clogher Heritage Complex includes the Heritage Cottage and Staunton’s Forge. In the Cottage Garden there is a display of vintage farm machinery, a and a picnic area with a water feature.
The land on which the cottage and garden stands was donated by Mrs. B. Cosgrave and family of Newtown, Clogher.
The Heritage Cottage is newly constructed, built in 2003, the labour and expertise supplied by our local FÁS CE Scheme.
The restored working forge is open to visitors - Stauntons Forge, Newtown was authentically rebuilt in its former form in 1999,and it reopened in 2001.
Every effort has been made to reproduce a typical one bedroomed labourers’ cottage, it includes a cailleach (a bed in an alcove) and a loft. The loft would have been used as extra bed space but currently contains an excellent display of churns and other artifacts. Local residents have donated many of the items on display
