Children just love to go on a picnic, don't they? Here are the best places around Longford that are just great for a picnic with the kids
The view isn't what it used to be but it's well worth a hike to the top of Corn Hill with a few sandwiches.
The Mall in Longford has picnic benches and pleasant riverside paths. Toilets are available in the Leisure Centre and there's a kids playground.
Take a break along the canal in Abbeyshrule, Ballymahon (Brannigan Harbour) or Clondra.
If you're taking the family out for the day, we can recommend
- Belvedere House near Mullingar and
- Glendeer Pet Farm near Athlone
- Arigna Mining Experience
- Lough Key Forest & Activity Park
All of which have great views, picnic facilities and cafés or restaurants if you'd rather not pack your lunch!
