Loughcrew Lightscape

1st December – 3rd January

4.00pm – 9.00pm

Loughcrew Lightscape – Illuminated Gardens is a sparkling Christmas spectacle, illuminating the trees of our estate and creating a story as you walk along our woodland trail.

The small team at Loughcrew, along with the genius of Walter Holt, have created imaginative and ingenious light installations and sculptures out of plastic waste, gas cylinders and scrap metal. A true show of hope, light, and determination in these trying times.

Put on your winter finest, sip from a steaming cup of mulled wine and step into the amazing winter wonderland at Loughcrew.

There are some fantastic hot refreshments available on site at both the coffee shop and the Crepe Caravan. Come along and embrace the food, warmth and cheer as we say our farewells to 2020 in style.
