    Default Great walks... Co. Meath/Cavan (Ireland)

    Was very inspired today. We took the dogs up to Kingscourt (Co. Cavan I think, but very near meath border). A friend recommended Dun a Ri forest park up there and it was definitely one of the nicest walks we've ever brought them on. Gorgeous forest trails, open fields, ponds, streams, little waterfalls, wishing wells... It's worth a trip up if you don't live too far away, or are passing through with your dogs. It's about 30-35 mins north of Navan.

    Anyway, here are my favourite Meath/Cavan/Dublin area walks for the dogs... I'd love to hear about other peoples favourite walks in their areas.

    1. Dun a Ri forest park, Kingscourt
    2. Balrath woods, near Kentstown (halfway between navan and Ashbourne)
    3. open fields in Garristown (north county dublin)
    4. Phoenix park
    5. Down around the lake and woods in Virginia, Co. Cavan

    Cavaliers at the bridge, much missed and not forgotten: Aggie (tricolour female) and Rio (Blenheim female) and Tandie (ruby female)

    Default open fields in Garristown ?

    Are there fields in Garristown with open access to the public?

    We love Tymon Park (the greenhills road/Tallaght end) - it's right across the road from my house & The furkids love to watch the ducks!

    We love to go to Lucan Demesne (sp?!), Donadea Forest and Griffeen Park in Lucan.
    If the weather is nice we will try to get to the beach - we love Silver Strands in Wicklow and went to Bettystown beach last weekend which was quite nice.

    Oh cool! I always have my eyes peeled for any Cavvies about the place when we're out for walks. Met a lady there last week with a blenheim boy who was just gorgeous. If I ever see a cavalier I will always say hello - so Im sure we will bump into each other at some stage.

    Looking at the weather I think we'll have to head up there later. Its so nice to have a bit of sunshine at last!

    We stopped off at Dun A RĂ* forest park yesterday
    It's a lovely place for a day out. The doggies enjoyed themselves and I will definitely go back there. Next time I will bring a picnic lunch and my camera.
