The Causey Experience
Since 1998 Causey Farm Meath has built a wonderful reputation as one of Ireland’s most popular primary school tour venues. We offer a magical mix of experiences from exploring ancient bog lands to the wonders of giant bubble blowing …
- Traditional Turf Cutting
- Bodhrán Workshop
- Farm Yard Visit
- Graffiti Art
- Obstacle Course
- Nature Walk
- Bog Jumping (2nd – 6th Class)
Our programme lasts for 3 ½ hours including lunch. All of our activities are tailored to suit the age group of the students from junior infants right through to sixth class; we’ve many indoor venues so we can en sure a successful day regardless of the elements.
There are two leaders with each class who will ensure that students have an action packed day where they learn new skills and thoroughly enjoy them. The children need to bring a packed lunch and drinks. Everyone must wear their oldest clothes and shoes (wellies if they have them) and from second to sixth class must bring a complete change of old clothes and footwear. Please also bring an old towel and a plastic bag to take home the bog-jumping clothes.
Bogjumping is very messy—but it is FANTASTIC fun!
