Day out to Glencar…

So we’ve had a day (well a few hours) out today to Glencar waterfall. It’s about an hour away from us and it’s a beautiful place, there’s mountains and a lake to the side you park on:

and then you cross the road and the waterfall is a very short walk away,

Then there’s the tea shed (A really nice cafe) which is just on the roadside. We went in and got a sandwich, but I had to make a quick exit because littlest was trying to make off with toys they had for sale and then rolling around on the floor when I took them off him. But! They also have a little playground outside so he was then really happy!

They’re really welcoming and it has a really friendly feel. You can also sit outside, and as mentioned before, the view is so good!

I’ve been wanting to go for a while, so that’s one off my list! I think we’ll probably be going back too.

There’s also another waterfall that we could see from the road a little further up called ‘the devils chimney’. You can walk to it, but we didn’t today. We noticed it because the water at the top was actually blowing up into the air.

you can only just vaguely see it in the background. Phones aren’t the best at taking these sort of photos, but that walk is definitely another for the to do list.

This was on the way home through Manorhamilton:

There was a pub further up with really bright murals on the wall too, but I didn’t manage to get that one. We were driving too fast 😊 (I wasn’t driving, just in case you were wondering).
