The Cailleach has lost the ingredients to her potion, and she needs your help to try find them! With the help of our guardian of Loughcrew, you will be taken on a tour of our gardens through our fairy rings, our mysterious follies, and into the witch’s own hut to try some of her spooky potion. There will be obstacles to face along the journey as you will be taken into our adventure course to pass the challenge of witch’s ropes.

Led by an actor, children will be introduced to Irish folklore and magic, on a fun-filled, educational and adventurous treasure hunt.

Suitable for the ages of 4 to 12. Fancy dress is encouraged but please wear outdoor shoes.

Our gardens are buggy friendly but be mindful, as is the nature of the outdoors, there will be tree roots growing in some areas that may create a bumpy ride for little ones.

NB: For all other bookings please contact
