here you pay into the forest, but well worth it as it has 640 acres, loads of interesting things there apart from all the walks, like the castle , the lake, ice house

That's really cool, Irish - so they really DO look like the castles you see in the story books! Sometimes I've wondered if they just made up how they looked. But I guess not!
