So the summer has flown and this week is a frenzy of finishing up work, packing and getting ready for our hols. We’re leaving Bandon for Espana for a couple of weeks. Whilst we’re gone, my brother, his wife and their three fabulous daughters shall be using our gaff as a base for their West Cork holidays.
I’ve decided to make a list of “Things to Do and See in and around Bandon” for his family, keeping in mind that the children range in age from 6 years old to 9 months.
This is what I’ve come up with so far.
- Clonakilty Model Village and train
- Inchydoney beach
- Playground in Clonakilty
- Playground in Bandon
- Garretstown beach
- Charles Fort in Kinsale
- Whale in Kilbrittain
- Playground in Timoleague
- Nice flat walk from Courtmacsherry to Timoleague along the inlet, suitable for bike rides
- If weather is terrible and you feel like a day trip, I would recommend the Aquadome in Tralee and stop on the way in Killarney National Park. Great playground there. Aquadome good fun. Driving there takes about an hour and half.
- Cinema in Clonakilty
- McCarthys Maze Trail in Kilbrittain
- Fota Wildlife Park
- Bandon Skate and Play
So what have I missed? I know there’s plenty more but nothing else is springing to mind at the moment so any suggestions would be most welcome!
