The top five picnic spots in Ireland


We’re really hoping this gorgeous weather keeps up, so we can finally make some use of that super cute picnic basket we bought last February. If you’re not sure where to go for you picnic though, just take a look at our top five picks!

The Phoenix Park, Dublin City
This is the biggest urban park in Europe so even on the sunniest of days your bound to find an empty spot to spread your blanket. Bring some carrots to feed the deer, and don’t forget to stop into the zoo for some summer fun!

Glendalough, Co. Wicklow
Glendalough’s beautiful landscape and rich history makes it the perfect spot for a picnic day out with your friends.

Lough Boora Parklands, Co Offaly
Between walking or hiking, cycling, coarse angling, game fishing and birdwatching, there are plenty of activities to do in Lough Boora Parklands, so you’ll be sure to work up an appetite!

GurteenBay in Roundstone, Galway
This is one of Ireland’s most picturesque spots, offering breathtaking views of Inish Laken Island and the Atlantic Ocean. It’s the perfect spot for a romantic outdoor lunch.

Clare Glens Wood, Co. Tipperary
Venture into the woods with your basket and enjoy the beautiful scenery and crystal clear river water. It’ll feel just like a fairytale (Well, if it doesn’t lash rain that is!).
