If you ask my daughter what the highlight of her trips back to Ireland are, she will more than likely regale you with stories of the park. Our favorite is a fabulous park right down the road from my folks: Ballincollig Regional Park.
It is actually a gunpowder mill. The mills are on the other side of the park and we didn’t make it over that far yesterday morning. But if you are a history buff, there’s a lot of interesting history about Ballincollig right there.
Anytime there’s a playground, my kids will be happy! And this one is one of their favorites.
Who needs a PlayStation when you can throw stones in a river? The park is on the River Lee which is the big river running through Cork.
The four-year-old got odd because his sister threw the stones in first……
…….and then he discovered ‘magical golden stones’ and all was right with the world again!
The fairy trail always takes us a long time to get through because my daughter likes to knock on ALL of the fairy doors! (There’s a lot of fairy doors!)
And finally, there’s usually a little cafe where mom and I can grab a cuppa if we are so inclined.
A fabulous morning trip to the park!
