What to do in Newquay


There's so much to do - but you don't have to! You might as well just sit back and relax - enjoy the view from our garden, watch your child play with the animals or stay inside listening to some good music while relaxing on our comfortable sofa...

On Abbey HillThe Burren
The only way to really experience it is by foot! The green roads are the old Burren roads and are perfect to explore this landscape on short and long walks.

The Burren Way is a 120-km signposted walking trail between the Burren National Park, Ballyvaughan and Lahinch. Guided Burren walks are available in the area.
Experience the Burren
Discovering the Flora
The Burren offer an abundant diversity of flowers and plants, never planted by man. Many of these are botanists delight. Among the most exotic and unexpected is the Mountain Aven, whose main habitat is northern Scandinavia and the Spring Gentian, whose natural home is in the slopes of the Alps. A near neighbour is the Maidenhair Fern, a stranger from the Mediterranean cosily nurtured in the sparse damp soil in the warm shelter of the Fissures.
Burren Flowers
Golfers can enjoy the proximity of nearby courses like the Links in Lahinch just 40 minutes away. Gort, Galway and Oranmore are all within reach.


Anglers have a huge choice of lakes, rivers and several spots along the coast line. Fishing trips are leaving from Ballyvaughan. You can also fish from the quay in Newquay or buy shellfish at source. Use herbs from our organic garden to cook your haul!
