Families & Children

Music Workshop

Take time out and visit us for family fun...

Wander through the ancient trees and count the swans on the lake. Step back 100 years and discover life in Ireland not so long ago. Ask Grandad – he’ll tell you all about it!

Play the rhythm of a wild, stormy sea; be captivated by the haunting tales of the séanachai or search for Peadar, the pygmy shrew. If you find him, don’t let him go!

A wonderful day out and it’s all for free! There’s a great café too.
