Lough Gur

Hi guys so seen as the summer is in full swing and if you are like me your scrambling the internet for ideas of fun things to do with kids. I’ve decided to start sharing some day out ideas again these aren’t generally just specific to kids. Living in Ireland with the summer weather being so unpredictable and the winter being generally miserable and wet its so important for us as a family to get out and about as much as we can during the year even if the day is less than perfect.

I really don’t like spending my weekends indoors summer or winter if i can avoid it. We visited Lough Gur in April. The day was a bit cold and windy but we enjoyed it regardless.Its completely free of charge to visit and walk around unless you want to opt for an audio tour which we did. Lough Gur website and price details here.

There is plenty of picnic pots around the lake. It was too cold the day we visited for a picnic but we will be back with a picnic over the summer.

Its a short walk from the car park to the visitor centre. Which has a small meusuem with interactive displays if you opt for the audio tour access to the museum is included.

Any excuse for a bit of fancy dress !

There is a small museum on site with interactive displays.

Who said ice creams were just for sunny days!

We done the self guided tour. You can walk around free of charge if your not interested in the tour.

The Fairy Village was a big hit with Harlow, who happens to be a huge fairy fan.

The tour and fairy trail is not accessible with buggies as its a small climb and rocky in places.

Love A
