Live crib at Turlough Park
Admission free | No booking required
Come along to the Courtyard of Turlough Park House this December to discover our crib scene brought to life with animals from Kiltimagh Pet Farm.
Kiltimagh Pet Farm and their four-legged friends will be here on Saturday and Sunday, 9, 10, 16 and 17 December 2023.
The crib was very much a part of the traditional Christmas celebrations in an Irish home.
Most families had a crib, and children would collect moss to decorate it. The Baby Jesus would not be placed in the crib until Christmas Morning.
Join Kiltimagh Pet Farm in the Courtyard to learn about animals such as sheep, goats, cows and donkeys which would be typical on a traditional Irish farm and which also form an important part of the nativity story at Christmas.
Then go to the exhibition galleries to visit the Life in the Community exhibition and learn about other Irish Christmas traditions such as Mummers and Wren Boys.
