This time of year the bigger school going children have their school tours. It causes great excitement with it being a day out of the school room and off to see something interesting. As Benjamin and Elizabeth are at home we decided we needed to have our version of a school tour. We have so many wonderful sites to see in nothing more than a 10 min drive from us circle it seemed such a waste not to take advantage of this.
This is our tour…..
First off we started the morning packing our picnic and sun creaming ourselves,
Then we headed first for the forest. Mullaghameen is the largest planted Beech Tree forest in Europe.
There are many different walks round the forest taking different levels of time. We took the yellow path which is the shortest of all routes still taking you on average 20-30 mins. My two did all of it with me in 30-45 mins and as your going to see we stopped many times along the way. These are a few things we spotted along our path. A young beech tree planted, a fern.
After this we then headed onto Fore Abbey.
We returned home happy and tired.
