Fairy Trails & Fairy Tales

Little ones will have magic weaved all around them by even littler ones at Bunratty Castle and Folk Park on Sunday 23rd June as we unveil our brand new Fairy Trail Experience.

To celebrate the unwrapping of this impish little trail, we will be hosting an afternoon of fairytastic fun and frolics including
  • Storytelling with the Queen of the Fairies
  • Bouncing castles
  • Kiddies disco
  • Fairy themed treats
  • Family yoga sessions and much more.
The new Fairy Trail, which encompasses a large part of the folk park, brings children on a magical mystery tour around this stunning 26 acre parkland. Visit the Fairy Travel Centre and learn where fairies go on their holidays; enrol in Fairy University and find out what it takes to get your wings or why not find a quiet nook in the Fairy Library and read from the fairy’s magical book of spells. With a Fairy Water Wheel, Dummy Tree, Wishing Water Lilly and much more, enjoy hours of endless fun exploring this magical fairy fortress.

To go with this delightful little trail, we have also introduced a whole host of appropriately sized animals as we launch our brand new Pet Farm. Open daily from 10.30am to 3.30pm from 15th June to September, meet some of the folk park cutest and cuddliest creatures including rabbits, lambs, goats, chickens, fawns and ducks.
Need of some zen time? Join us on the 23rd and on selected Sundays throughout June and July  for our family yoga sessions on the lawns of Bunratty House. Find your inner peace and connect with nature with this family friendly activity under the guidance our professional yoga instructor.
