Loughcrew Gardens are full of history, beauty, fantasy, and atmosphere making the visit a magical experience. Our Spring opening hours from Saturday March 30th 2019 are:
- Mon - Fri 11am - 4pm
- Sat & Sun 10am - 5pm
The ancient Yew Walk, medieval mote and St. Oliver Plunkett's family church create a spirit of history with a ‘grotesque' grotto with tortured pillars guarding a rockery of fantasy tree fairy sculptures. With something for all the family, the hidden story of Alice in Wonderland and a small playground keep the younger visitors happy, while the insect walk with giant bugs and hidden reptiles appeals to the older children. The canal, ponds, the water mill and cascades all create a stunning atmosphere.
Try the Fairy Trail for a magical day out or throw yourself into the outdoors on the Adventure Course.
Unfortunately, the key to Loughcrew Cairns will be unavailable for the season ahead as the OPW have extensive works to carry out to ensure the safety of the structure. They will have Tour Guides appointed throughout the summer at the summit.
