My husband, grandson, and myself are visiting Ireland in June. We would like to have our 15 year old grandson visit a forge and make a knife. Does anyone know where we can do that? Also which folk parks are the best to visit? My husband and I visited about ten years ago and saw Bunratty and the Ulster American Folk Museum. We plan to be in the NW part of Ireland to enjoy the outdoors most of the time with a trip into Northern Ireland for a few other attractions. 
Thank you
Sally Haines

Hello Sally,

It's great to hear you and your family are visiting Ireland!

Blade Smithing sounds like such a fun activity! There are quite a few bladesmithing short courses on the island, some to mention are Calnan & Anhoj in Wicklow, Hot Milk Forge in Antrim and the Swifts Forge, in Antrim as well. 

Bunratty is always a fantastic place to visit. However, other parks that we can recommend in the north of the island are Tollymore Forest Park and Slieve Gullion Forest Park, both in Northern Ireland, or Glenveagh National Park, in Donegal. 

We hope you find these recommendations useful.

Wishing you a great day,

David
