This little village in West Cork has been a favourite of ours for some time.
Whether you live in Cork or are visiting, Ballinspittle is well worth a morning / day trip.
There is an excellent playground that is really well kept and has fantastic equipment, with areas suitable for all ages.
You can then treat yourself to brunch / lunch / coffee in the gorgeous @divabakes
Right next door is the fabulous @chalk_and_easel shop where you can get some lovely unique little pieces (love our yellow luggy basket from there!)
If that’s not enough, on the outskirts of the village is Garrettstown Woods which has a nice, woodland looped walk that is great for smallies. (You can do a much longer looped walk if you have older kids)
Garrettstown Beach and Garrylucas are also close by if you really want to take it all in!!
So that’s our first family recommendation!
