Sundays is usually down time in our house, which means having Sunday dinner (Roast chicken or any other type of meat in the oven), potatoes, and vegetables, and then oodles of cups of tea, and a good read of the Sunday papers( we are avid Sunday Times Reader).
Today was no different really, except than that, before we chilled out, we went for a walk.
We went to a place called Dromore Woods, which is is a wonderful nature reserve with 1,000 acres of woodland. The remains of the 15th century Ruan Church is right next to Dromore Lake. Tours and booklets are available and admission is free. Dromore Woods is about 13km north of Ennis. The nearby village of Corofin, surrounded by lakes, is a good area for trout fishing
The Burren has a lot to offer, Dromore Woods is probably one of the lesser known places you can go to explore.
Here is just a little map on how to get to Dromore Woods.
Unfortunately it’s not possible to get there by public transport, so you’ll need a car, but it’s fairly well signposted once you are outside of Crusheen ( passed the bridge on the way to Ennis, on the “old” road” – as Crusheen is now bypassed – since the new new motorway to Shannon was built)
Have a great day!
