A Delightful Village If you are a nature-lover, the walk through the country to Lake Kellymore is wonderful and as it takes less than an hour, it is well worth the effort. This big inland lake is lovely for swimming. The fishing is said to be excellent, though Ive no personal experience with it.
A Delightful Village In the centre of Garrick is the village square. Like many of the roads in Garrick, the square is unpaved but rock hard from centuries of foot traffic. Dominating the square are a couple of silver-barked trees which in the spring are alive with nesting birds. Between the trees are a statue and a fountain. Around the square are a few inexpensive restaurants, a couple of bars, and some little shops. Right in the middle of the square is a small store run by an old lady, who sells everything from sweets to T-shirts. Locals and visitors alike sit for hours over a drink in one of the bars, watching nothing much happen.
