Halloween Spooktacular!

Starting October 27th until 29th, we’ll be asking our resident ponies Prince & Bertie to don their saddles and bridles to offer pony rides to all our little visitors. They’ve taken some rest after the summer and are now raring to get going again and may have some appropriate decorations too!  

Join us from 11am-12.30pm and 2-3.30pm on the dates above for a chance to hop onboard a pony.  Face painting obligatory whilst you wait!

Hopefully our ponies wont be too afraid of your little ones however, as we invite them to dress in their scariest outfits, ready for our competition with spot prizes along the way!

But wait, that’s not all!! Enjoy magic shows from 11 am – 3 pm, as well as our spooky craft workshops. 

Finally, all ages can explore our spooky tunnel experience. Travel in the darkness and try not to get too scared!!

All the regular attractions are still available including an opportunity to meet the Living Legends team, take the fairy trail route through St Fiachra’s or paddle through our stepping stones in the Japanese Gardens for hours of outdoor fun.  For the greatest skeleton of all – pop in to the museum, you won’t be disappointed! And finally, end the day in our playground!

This is a full day out so allow 4/5 hours to really make the most of it.  Our cafe will be serving seasonal recipes along with the usual cakes and treats – and for a great warm up, hot chocolate and marshmallows all round!

All events are included in the regular entrance fee. Event suited to a younger audience. 

Tickets can be purchased on the day but to avail of discounted rates, book online at Follow the Irish National Stud & Gardens on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for regular updates.
