in News

Autumn is a magical season that brings a kaleidoscope of colours and a crispness to the air. It's the perfect time to embrace nature's beauty and enjoy the outdoors while staying warm and cosy. Here are some tips to help you make the most of this wonderful season.

When venturing outside, make sure to dress in layers to keep yourself warm.  Stay warm while out and about in County Leitrim this winter with McKernan's collection of scarves, shawls, wrist warmers and hats. With a variety of patterns and colours, you'll easily find the perfect addition to your winter wardrobe. 

And the perfect addition to an Irish walk in the many tracks and trails of Leitrim is a traditional John Hanly tweed flat cap.

Take advantage of the beautiful autumn scenery by going for hikes or walks in nature. Local trails such as the Miners Way, Acres Lake Boardwalk, Greenways in Dromahair, Glenfarne, Forest Walks in Milltown and Heritage Trails through Manorhamilton and Carrick-on-Shannon that showcase the vibrant colours of the changing leaves.

The crunch of fallen leaves beneath your feet and the fresh, cool air will invigorate your senses and make you feel connected to the season.

After a day spent outdoors, nothing beats coming home to a warm and comforting beverage in your favourite mug. Treat yourself to a cup of hot cocoa, spiced apple cider, or a steaming mug of herbal tea. These drinks will not only warm you up but also add to the cosy ambiance of the season.

When the weather outside is chilly, create a cosy retreat inside your home with lighting. Use earthy lamps and sustainable candles to wrap up a room in golden hues and banish the gloom.  Stay warm with a classic woollen blanket!  Check out John Hanly's luxurious collection in earthy tones and vibrant hues to brighten up those gloomy days. Embrace the hygge lifestyle by surrounding yourself with comforting elements that make you feel relaxed and content.

Autumn is the season of delicious flavours. Indulge in hearty soups, stews, and roasted vegetables that are abundant during this time served up on hand made platters of wood and clay. Treat yourself to freshly baked pies, warm apple crumbles, or pumpkin-spiced treats. These seasonal delights will not only warm your body but also satisfy your taste buds.

Autumn is a time for connection and togetherness. Plan gatherings with friends and family, whether it's a cosy dinner party or a bonfire under the starry sky. Share stories, laughter, and create lasting memories while enjoying the warmth of each other's company.

Remember, autumn is a season of change and beauty. Embrace the cooler temperatures and the vibrant colours while staying warm and cosy. By following these tips, you can make the most of this magical season and create cherished memories in nature's embrace.
