The Gardens

Visit Loughcrew’s historic gardens and spend a day ambling through a diverse, tranquil landscape with your friends and family. There is plenty to entertain all ages! Children love our wonderful Fairy Trail while gardeners enjoy investigating the beautiful array of trees and plants which can be found. Within the gardens stand a medieval motte and St. Oliver Plunkett’s family church and Tower House.

Children’s Day Out: The Loughcrew Fairy Trail

The Fairy Trail is an exciting interactive sensory trail which gets children exploring Loughcrew Gardens and it is now open all year round!

To complete the treasure hunt style trail, they will get an activity booklet and map and will have to solve clues and answer questions in order to get to the next part of it. It will get your children using their imaginations and embracing the outdoors and they may even spot some fairies as they explore! It is a great activity for grandparents and parents to enjoy too.

Be sure to pick up your children’s activity booklet from the ticket office and spend a lovely day having fun as a family. Fairy houses, giant ants and a fairy forest await!

Loughcrew House offers luxury accommodation and there is much to be learned about this historic site.

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.
