Fairy Dell Flora Reserve is a nature conservation reserve of special significance to the local area of Bruthen, eastablished in 1984. At 80ha in size, it protects an important area of warm temperate rainforest and is a lovely spot to explore. Old trees are covered in mosses (even in Summer), lovely native orchids bloom in spring, and vines and ferns also dominate the landscape.
With the hot summer about to break on us here in the southern hemisphere, it's nice to know that, especially if you're a city dweller, there's a cool and soothing oasis in the middle of the city that you can escape to.
Located in Irelands "Sunny South East" in West Waterford, is the distinctively pretty village of Ardmore. The village features hilly walks, breathtaking coastal scenery, St Declans Round Tower, and many white washed thatched cottages.
