​Aistear means ‘journey’ in Irish and this heritage park provides a lovely quirky place to relax, let the children wander about through its nooks and crannies, gaze at the lake or indeed reflect on the evolution of spirituality in Ireland. The park links the main street and the harbour along a pleasant pathway with plenty of distractions. A maze made of timber, stone and plants undulates and winds around part of the park. This is a pathway back in time, indicating seven periods from prehistory to the present during which spirituality has evolved.

The Aistear also has an outdoor exhibition area in a sunken courtyard, a playground, a picnic and recreation area and a labyrinth. It also has an outdoor gym and some information panels on the area. There is a visitor centre in the middle of the park and you can get some information heritage there as well as an exhibition on Holy Island.

As a place to stop off for a short time to unwind, have a picnic, make your way to the lake and the nearby playground, soak up the atmosphere of the park and all for free.
