One of Galway’s most iconic spots is Salthill Promenade – the perfect spot for a buggy walk. The full route is 5km which can be divided into three sections – The Prom, The Claddagh and Blackrock.
Strandhill is one of our favourite places to visit in Ireland, a compact village nestled beneath Knocknarea. This is such a vibrant place with all the facilities you need including cafes, bar, Voya Seaweed Baths (for a real treat), playground and markets every Sunday. Of course we love going there for our buggy-friendly stroll along the prom and onto the beach when the tide allows. Don’t forget your bucket and spade!

Most people know this walk as the walk around the sewage plant. Don’t be put off, it is a lovely walk next to the water about 3.6km in a loop and there is a playground at the start/end of it. You can find more details here.
Many thanks as always Theresa x
Hazelwood Forest located in Calry, outside Sligo Town is a must see when visiting Yeats County. A tranquil spot to go for a ramble with buggy and kiddies in tow. This is a forest trail so a sturdy buggy is required. We brought some buckets which were filled after lots of foraging. There is ample free car parking but no other facilities on site.
Loughrea Lake is a fantastic place to visit with your family, young and old. The walkway is very accessible and buggy-friendly with beautiful views over the lake. The wow factor(s) for the smallies were the 3 playgrounds (yes that’s right – 3) catering to all ages. As if that wasn’t enough there is also a skateboard park, free car park, picnic facilities, outdoor gym equipment and a large green area. Enough said!
A big thank you to @corkfamilywalks for tagging us on FB about this walk in Tipperary. All credit to her and Sinead Chadwick for details and photos…
Our first official family day out in Galway brought us to the scenic village of Spiddal which lies on the shores of Galway Bay and on the eastern side of the Connemara region. We thoroughly enjoyed our stroll along the wheel-friendly promenade with the options to climb rocks and balance along small walls.
Another shout out to Theresa from Eat.Play.Love. for sharing another great Cork walk. All credit to her…
This is a great walk around in a loop. It is accessible just beyond the Castlemartyr resort entrance. Beautiful scenery,the track is rough terrain with a double buggy but it can be done!
Just a girl and her sometimes dodgy mind.
