We are getting closer and closer to Easter now. It’s only 3 days until Good Friday now. Unfortunately I have to work that day but Easter Sunday is the day really we do the Easter Egg Hunt in our house.
I thought it would be fun to share a list of events all over Ireland with you which do Easter Egg Hunts in your local town maybe and it gives you something to do with your kids. Here is to good weather!! (
This hunt is in association with Barnardos. It takes place on Friday and Saturday in Dublin’s Merrion Square. There are 4 Easter Egg hunts in total. 2 on each day. You can find out about the times and cost here.
Suitable for children ages 4 to 8 years this is a guided tour through Croke Park while going on a hunt for Easter Eggs in the stadium. It’s on everyday from Wednesday 23rd March to Monday, 28th March (except for Friday, 25th March). Your child will also get a chance to test his/her skills at hurling or football. More can be found here.
This is known as the best Easter Egg hunt in the country. It runs for 7 days from 26th March to 1st April 10am to 6pm. While eating delicious chocolately eggs you can also meet the bunny himself and play Easter themed games in the indoor play centre. Every child will receive an egg once they have complete the puzzle around the park. Find out more here.
Take part in the park’s hunt and answer all questions around the park to receive an egg per child. There will be free face painting and arts and crafts for kids under the age of 6. More information can be found here.
As well as an Easter Egg hunt the farm also has an Egg throwing competition scheduled. Each egg will cost €1 and it goes to the Make a Wish foundation. It’s on the whole Easter weekend. More about it here.
Take part in the Easter Egg hunt and meet the Easter bunny himself on Easter Sunday between 1 and 3pm.
I’ve heard a lot about Westport House. It is a very family friendly place and it is definitely on my to-do list as family trip. Easter Sunday is the day for the hunt over here. Pinkie, the Easter Bunny will welcome all kids and lead the Easter Egg Hunt. The first 300 kids will get an Easter Egg. More information here.
Running from Easter Saturday until Easter Monday this farm runs fun activities as well as face painting, egg and spoon races. More here.
Join in the fun at Lough Key Forest Park this Easter weekend starting from Saturday with lots of activities such as colouring competitions, guess how many eggs are in the jar, Easter treats in the cafe and much much more.
The mall will be holding a hunt from 1 – 5pm on Saturday while the Easter bunny will be hopping around and giving out free mini eggs. There will also be free face painting.
Saturday and Sunday come along for some colouring competitions, find the bunnies and a few more things. More information here.
