Children just love to go on a picnic, don't they? Here are the best places around Kildare that are just great for a picnic with the kids.
Donadea Forest Park – Lake with ducks and birds. Many historical features incl. remains of castle, and walled garden. Small cafe open all year.
Mullaghreelan Wood – Picturesque old woodland estate, with mixed trails, adjoining Kilkea castle.
Curragh Plains – Extensive tract of grassland, ideal for walking, cycling, flying a kite and popular on a sunny day for picnics. Though do take care where you sit – the sheep roam freely, so there can often be sheep dirt.
Moone – Park in Moone with great wooden playground, goal posts, and good picnic spots.
Clonfert Pet Farm – Pet Farm near Maynooth, with indoor and outdoor play areas, cafe and large picnic area.
