Top 5 fairy trails in / around Dublin
After visiting the adventure playground or having a tea with a cake in Brambles cafe, you can take a wonderful walk in Marlay Park to find the famous Fairy Tree in the middle of the park.
Corkagh Park is a great option if you are on a budget, yet you want to have a lovely day out. After visiting the Fairy Woods, do not forget to pop into the free pet farm and the adventure playground or have a picnic in the green.
Lullymore Heritage and Discovery Park offers one of the best day outs for families close to Dublin. There is so much to do for the whole family besides finding the gorgeous Fairy Village and wandering around the park to discover where the little fairies reside. Until the 3rd of September you can take part in the famous Fairy Quest, too.
"On the island you can meet Faylinn and his fairy friends while you search for fairy doors among the trees. Pick up a brochure at Reception to learn all about the fairies' forays, learn the fairy language, and enjoy fairy games. You can also discover more about fairy flowers, fauna, and the natural materials that the fairies use for their clothing and jewellery. Fairy Trail brochures are available from Reception as part of an Outdoor Family Ticket, or sold separately."
Another perfect destination if you want to have fun for free. The playground behind the castle is voted for one of the best playgrounds in County Dublin, but looking for fairies in the woods is great fun as well. Older kids might find the guided tour to the castle enjoyable too and do not forget that the tearoom next to the castle serves divine cakes...
Fairies in the middle of the city? Yes, it is possible! Visit this hidden little gem in Blessington Street to see the little creatures' home. Next to the park there is a decent playground, so make sure to check it out too!
