Seasonal Halloween Fun!
Pick and carve a pumpkin from our patch in our annual fun day celebrating Ireland’s most ancient festival.
We are delighted to host a pick and carve pumpkin extravaganza this year for all ages to participate in an outdoor celebration of this ancient festival! The earliest form was an end-of-summer festival, ‘Samhain’, often known as the Celtic New Year, to mark the beginning of the long winter nights.
This weekend at Killruddery, we want to celebrate the light days of summer and dark nights of winter with activities in the gardens from Pumpkin carving to taking the Samhain walk through the wilderness. Don’t miss our very special DIY Scarecrow Competition and the chance to unite with your family and get creative outside!
Each day will be run in 3 x two hour time slots, 10:00-12:00, 12:30-2:30 & 3:00-5:00, Please ensure you arrive promptly so as not to miss out on any of your allocated time!
Winners of the scarecrow competition announced daily at 4:30pm at the bowling green and live on our social media. Prizes can be collected from the entrance shop if not collected on announcement.
