Join us at Rathwood Carlow this Halloween for a spooktacular Halloween adventure. On the adventure you will be greeted by friendly creatures, witches and a few spooky characters. Hop on the train if you dare to enter the enchanted woods where mysterious creatures live. It is your task to help Gretel travel safely through the enchanted woods to find her way home. If you are brave enough to enter the pumpkin patch in the enchanted woods you can pick your favourite pumpkin and with the help of our friendly witches carve your favourite picture onto it. When your pumpkin is complete, you can take it home. After your adventure you will receive free hot chocolate in our family restaurant to warm you up and relax after the spooky adventure.
Our Halloween adventure is suitable for children of all ages. We encourage both children and adults alike to dress up for this spooktacular adventure as there is a prize for the best fancy dress.
This event will run from the 19-20th of October and again from the 26th-31st of October. All bookings can be made online for this event, but hurry tickets are selling out fast.
However, the Rathwood experience does not just stop at our Halloween event. Rathwood offers a range of handcrafted furniture, stylish gifts, a top quality restaurant, charming garden centre, forest walks and an outdoor children’s play area; the first of its kind in the region.
Not only do we offer a shopping experience, we also have a woodlands falconry where birds from all around the world are on display. Enjoy a walk in the woods accompanied by hawks and other birds.
While you are at Rathwood visit the Animal Park where you will see plenty of deer, sheep and American turkey. Then take a walk to our pond, the home to many ducks and geese. Food is available at reception for the ducks.
