We never knew the significance of Middle Island. It is quite significant in Irish History. You can walk all around the island, lots of benches for resting; museum, gift shop and resteraunt on site; as well as places for picnicking.

Enjoyed a quite morning at the beach with our toddler. Found a sandy spot to sit and play and spent some time in the river too. Beautiful spot for a picnic at one of the many tables.
