Day Trips from Cork City

After spending so much time restricted to a 1.5–3km area last year, we are trying to make the most of our weekends to explore again. Especially places with lakes and trees! I compiled a list of some of our favorite day trips from Cork city in case you have the same idea. You can always make a weekend or midterm break getaway of it with an overnight stay.

In related news, on my other blog I have a post about Surviving and Thriving on Staycation Drives or Long Road Trips with Kids and another listing 6 Scenic Drives in Ireland for Your Staycation.
