Cahir Sensory Garden, Co. Tipperary ♥

During our visit to Tipperary, which we collaborated with Visit Tipperary on, we stopped by Cahir Sensory Garden, which is just few minutes away by car from Cahir Castle.

I had never been to a sensory garden before so I wasn't sure what I was expecting, but as Tyler has Sensory Processing Disorder and finds the sensory room at school really helpful, I was hoping that the sensory garden would be a lovely place for him to visit.

The garden itself is small but is a lovely little hidden oasis along the town and it was so peaceful and quiet in there. We were the only people in there when we visited, which I love when we visit places and have them to ourselves, as it means that the boys can run about and explore freely without interrupting others.

The materials for the sensory garden were supplied by the Cahir Tidy Towns team and I always think it's lovely when communities come together to create beautiful little spaces such as this in their towns.

The sensory garden has a little wooden maze which the boys had fun running about in. It also had chairs which were carved like open hands, they were beautiful.

There's a little area in the garden dedicated to the memories of babies and children who have died and it was all very sweet. I imagine the parents of those children come to the sensory garden to gather their thoughts and think about their children.

It really was such a tranquil place and it was much needed after a busy day of daytripping around Tipperary with the boys on my own.

If you find yourself in Cahir and are looking for somewhere to let the kids explore or to even enjoy a quiet picnic then I think the sensory garden is a lovely spot to go to, even if you only have half an hour to spare.
