Spring Festival Galway
2016 Festival Dates: Thursday March 17th to Sunday April 3rd
Join Slieve Aughty any day during the Easter holidays and capture the joy of spring!
Spring is a lovely time at the centre as it seems to coincide with warmer weather, emerging flowers and longer days that inspire everyone to shake out the dust of winter and get busy. There are plenty of animals around to visit, or you can go for a ride on one of the friendly horses or ponies (from €10 for lead reins for children ages 5 and up!). Take a short walk to the Enchanted Forest and see if you can spot any fairy folk. Step into The Three Towers Organic Kitchen and fill your senses with the scent of fresh, home-made cooking, or simply grab a hot coffee or tea and sit outside in the garden. The kids can make a Spring craft to bring home, and the whole family can try out a silly “spring” wardrobe and take some family photos.
Don’t forget to enter the Christmas Festival Contest and win a family pass to the best Santa event in Galway or make a contribution to the Centre for Environmental Living and Training as part of the Easter Monday Charity Ride.
Of course, the best activity is the Easter bunny hunt. Especially for the season, the centre turn their ordinary walking trail into a treasure trail with clues to help you find the elusive Easter bunny. Children can go on the hunt on horse back for €15 each. Fun and creative for all. Keep an eye on the upcoming events for more information about activities offered on specific days throughout the festival weeks, such as the Easter Sunday charity ride, organic gardening demonstrations, Easter pony camp and Easter cooking workshops.
