When mum was over recently we went for a walk in Knocksink Woods. Knocksink Woods is a nature reserve in Enniskerry, Co. Wicklow and is very close to Dublin. It is a lovely place to visit with children as there is a river with bridges, woods, trees to climb, slopes to climb up and slide down as well as some small winding paths through the woods. If you venture off the main path you come to a small shingle beach where my children have been known to paddle in the icy waters. After a walk here it's only a short hop to the beautiful gardens at Powerscourt where you can enjoy a scrumptious lunch or a nice hot cuppa with a slice of tasty lemon tart.
