Just before the summer holidays finished, we visited Belleek woods in Ballina, Co. Mayo. We had visited the woods before, but one of the paths was now part of a new cycle greenway from Ballina to Killala (called the Monasteries of the Moy Greenway) and we thought we’d try some of the route.
As we followed some of the woodland paths on our return we found these lovely fairy houses. The fairy trail has been a relatively recent addition to the woods and many of the fairy houses have been made locally through the men’s shed project.
It was a great little find and particularly entertained our six year old who enjoyed running ahead to see what little fairy house she could spot next.
