Easter Egg Hunts in Ireland
Posted by Neil Hand on the 2nd of April 2015 at 10:58:12
The long Easter weekend begins for many people in Ireland tomorrow, and will run right through to Monday. I was just discussing with a colleague of mine how (as we’re one of the lucky companies to have both Friday and Monday off this weekend) this is only second to Christmas as the longest mandatory holiday we’ll get all year. Excitement is high. Is it time to go home yet? (the clock reads 9:25am)
Easter provides a great opportunity for families to catch up. There haven’t been too many opportunities for everyone to get together since Christmas, for all the kids and grandkids, aunts and uncles, mothers and fathers to spend some quality time together.
One aspect of the Easter festival everyone seems to be in agreement with is the chocolate. Everywhere you turn there’s chocolate. In the office here at Tour Ireland right now, there’s free chocolate in the kitchen. Excuse me for a moment…
… Ok, I’m back. Easter eggs was the point I was coming to, eventually. There are a host of Easter egg hunts for your young ones to enjoy taking place all over Ireland this weekend. Here’s a selection of our favourites:
Cork – Fota House
Taking place on Friday & Saturday, April 3rd and 4th, is the Easter Egg Trail at Fota House. The beautiful gardens of Fota House will be decked out in the style of Alice in Wonderland. Young kids are guaranteed to have a magical time hunting easter eggs in this colourful, topsy-turvy setting. Get your kids Alice in Wonderland costumes for the ultimate experience.
Dublin – Farmleigh House, Phoenix Park
In the capital, head for Farmleigh House in the Phoenix Park with the little ones for the Easter Egg challenge. The adults can enjoy the spacious, sculpted grounds of Farmleigh while the kids get a little crazy hunting for eggs. A beautiful Easter balance. Taking place on Easter Sunday afternoon, betweek 3 and 4:45pm.
Wexford – Irish National Heritage Park, Ferrycarrig
On Friday & Saturday between 9:30am and 4:30pm, bring your kids to meet the Easter Bunny in the Sunny South-East. The Irish National Heritage Park in Ferrycarrig hosts this wonderful Easter Egg Hunt, which clocks in as the longest hunt on our list. Kids will be occupied with the hunt for 2 hours, giving adults plenty of time to enjoy the stunning setting.
