Barna Woods, an enchanting forest located just off the main road to Barna, Galway. Blink and you will miss the gateway with only a handful of parking spaces however the woods can also be accessed through Cappagh Park. This really is a hidden gem, with old native trees throughout.
Any forest in autumn is a sight to behold but Barna Woods is a very special spot indeed. The path was quite slippy and mucky due to the rain so a sturdy buggy is required. You can read more details here.

FROM A DISTANCE
The third installment for wheel-friendly walks in Salthill, is The Claddagh. This an area close to the centre of Galway city, where the River Corrib meets Galway Bay. There is a fantastic walkway running from the Spanish Arch in Galway city and Salthill. Continue reading
ROOM FOR ALL
As outlined in a previous post there are three walks in Salthill. The Blackrock walk is a continuation of the promenade starting at the diving tower, taking you west towards Salthill Caravan and Camping Park.
Brigit’s Garden is a truly special amenity located in Rosscahill, Co. Galway. With both gravel and grassy paths, a sturdy buggy is required . Check out their website for all the finer details about their wonderful gardens, café, gift shop and so much more.
A PREHISTORIC PATH

One of Galway’s most iconic spots is Salthill Promenade – the perfect spot for a buggy walk. The full route is 5km which can be divided into three sections – The Prom, The Claddagh and Blackrock.
A GALWAY GEM
After a lot of recommendations from lovely Galway Mamas we made it a point to visit Rinville Park, Oranmore. It did not disappoint! A super amenity with one of the coolest playground settings we’ve seen. The tar mac path is ideal for all small wheel users.
Strandhill is one of our favourite places to visit in Ireland, a compact village nestled beneath Knocknarea. This is such a vibrant place with all the facilities you need including cafes, bar, Voya Seaweed Baths (for a real treat), playground and markets every Sunday. Of course we love going there for our buggy-friendly stroll along the prom and onto the beach when the tide allows. Don’t forget your bucket and spade!

Most people know this walk as the walk around the sewage plant. Don’t be put off, it is a lovely walk next to the water about 3.6km in a loop and there is a playground at the start/end of it. You can find more details here.
Many thanks as always Theresa x
Hazelwood Forest located in Calry, outside Sligo Town is a must see when visiting Yeats County. A tranquil spot to go for a ramble with buggy and kiddies in tow. This is a forest trail so a sturdy buggy is required. We brought some buckets which were filled after lots of foraging. There is ample free car parking but no other facilities on site.
