These crisp, cold but beautiful afternoons are perfect for exploring our 1000 acre estate, Victorian Walled Garden, Gothic Church, Mausoleum and the Abbey. We have plenty to keep the kids entertained with a kids play area in Mitchell’s cafe with lots of books and colouring, a fairy village beside the Tea House, where little magical creatures have built their houses & come to play! We also have two very friendly pigs named Ken and Gloria who love to greet visitors as they rummage around in the mud! There is lots to see and do on the estate however from January 7th, the Abbey will be closed due to extensive restoration work taking place. All other areas will be open and should not be missed!

Halloween Family Fun Afternoon

Last Saturday, October 27th, we celebrated Halloween with our Family Fun Afternoon.

We had a great day with a brilliant turn-out. It was a magical day where kids could experience a traditional style Halloween. They enjoyed home-made Halloween Concannon, Barm Brack & had their fortunes told by the Fortune Teller. Everyone created their own fairy wands to help the Cailleach cast all their wishes to the sky at the celebratory bonfire!

There was fascinated faces all round as kids wandered around the fairy village, painted fairy doors and added names of their loved ones to the tree of remembrance. 

Everyone also got to learn a little about nature as they joined Head Gardener Anja to decorate & set up our frog hibernation houses in the Garden. 

A fun-filled day all round. Happy Halloween!
