We offer a welcome to all at Strokestown Park and strive to make the house, museum, gardens and our events as accessible to visitors as possible.
The National Famine Museum, Woodland Café and gift shop and our Visitor Centre are all wheelchair accessible.
There is wheelchair access to the ground floor of the house, and staff will be happy to assist if any help is needed. Due to the nature of the original structure, we regret that access to the first floor of the house is restricted; however, we have information on these rooms available in a folder at the welcome desk, which our staff can share with you during your visit.
The Strokestown Gardens and Woodland Walk are surfaced with gravel. [mention wheelchairs and pushchairs] Are they step-free? Also mention frequency of benches to allow for rest-stops along the way?
Assistance dogs are welcome in the house, grounds, museum, shop and café. Water is provided outside for visiting dogs. For the comfort and safety of other visitors, dogs should be kept on a short lead at all times.
