Buggy-friendly walks Clare – The Flaggy Shore

“So that the ocean on one side is wild
With foam and glitter, and inland among stones”

(Séamus Heaney)

Flaggy Shore 7

The Flaggy Shore – Geosite  is  a half a mile of coastline that stretches from New Quay to Finavarra with a panoramic view of Galway Bay. While there are no facilities other than a make-shift car parking area, this walk is a must if you are visiting the area. It’s beauty and wilderness inspired our very own Séamus Heaney  who’s poem ‘Postcript’ details a visit he made there. A magical find in the banner county with a tarmac path along the coast making it very accessible indeed. Continue reading

As parks go Blackwater Park is very new having only opened in June 2015. A very buggy-friendly & accessible 1.5km tarmac track circles the park which includes an enclosed playground and playing pitches. There is ample free parking on site. This is a great asset to the town of Navan and well worth a visit if you’re in the area.
