Hopefully we will feel those temps again soon; maybe in time for when the kids get their summer break from school in 2 weeks time.
We were lucky enough to have booked a self-catering cottage that gorgeous May weekend for a small family break.
Terryglass, for those who have never been, is a lovely wee village. It has 2 pubs and one shop, all beside each other and within a few mins walking distance from the pier and the self-catering cottages. The perfect spot to relax and unwind.
Both pubs (The Derg Inn and Paddys Bar) do food and have picnic benches outside, perfect for lunch/dinner on a sunny day (we ate 'out' every evening, whats seldom is wonderful!).
Down at the pier there are plenty of facilities ie public toilets, showers, playground and picnic benches for those staying in the marina or interested in watersports.
Next day we traveled southwards, along the 'Derg Way', and found a lovely wee spot to pull in and park.
Of course my eldest spotted this boats Irish name before us adults! (please look it up if you dont know what it means hehe)
We drove down through Killaloe (lovely town too) to a village called O'Briensbridge and across the Shannon on this bridge is Montpelier, Co Limerick.
On the way back to our rented cottage we dropped into the village of Dromineer for an ice-cream.
And were lucky enough to see this wee family enjoying the good weather.
After a lovely few days it was time to say goodbye to Terryglass and a lovely weekend.
