Following the Trick or Treat Trails on the October Bank Holiday weekend, the fun continues at Croke Park for the remainder of the Mid-Term Break. From Tuesday November 1st to Sunday November 6th, there will be two family friendly additions to the Croke Park Stadium Tour.

Following each behind-the-scenes tour, our guides will lead younger visitors on a special Junior Explorer route around the GAA Museum, which highlights some of the most fascinating and famous exhibitions. The Junior Explorer mascot Cluasóg, the Irish hare, will also be on hand to assist and pose for photos!

Visitors will also have the unique chance to lift the Sam Maguire and Liam MacCarthy cups! The iconic silverware will be on display in the GAA Museum throughout the week and there’ll be a chance to take plenty of family pictures as you raise the cups in victory! (Please note: The cups will not be available on October 29th and November 5th).

After you’ve tasted the scent of victory, it’s time to taste some scarily good food at the Blackthorn Café at the GAA Museum, which will serve a spooky themed menu throughout the week.

These special stadium tours will operate hourly at 11.00; 12.00; 13.00; 14.00 and 15.00.

About Ardgillan Castle
Although referred to as a Castle, the residence at Ardgillan is a large country-styled house with castellated embellishments. Originally named “Prospect House”, the central section was built in 1738 by Robert Taylor, with the west and east wings added in the late 1800s.

Initially the site was heavily wooded, the name Ardgillan being derived from the Irish “Ard Choill” meaning High Wood. It was cleared out by service soldiers and itinerant workers in return for one penny a day, sleeping accommodation and one meal.

The house consists of two storeys over a basement which extends out under the lawns on the southern side of the building. When occupied, the ground and first floors were the living accommodations while the west and east wings were servants’ quarters and estate offices. The basement comprised of the service floor, the kitchen and stores. The Castle has now been restored and the ground floor rooms and kitchens are open to visitors for guided tours.

wooly wards

Scary Mary, Cathal & their family set up Wooly Ward’s Farm in 2011 when they saw the level of interest people and children had with farm animals. Over the four years they have put three mobile farms on the road, opened up their own farm for private parties and events and entertained thousands of people with their animal theatre and petting zoo. In 2015, they added the Reptile and Exotic Zoo to their collection of mobile units.

They have built up a highly trained team of young and energetic staff of approx 30 who work alongside Scary Mary, Cathal, daughters Amy & Laura,  sons Sean & Rob and recently Caroline & Heather aged 10 & 8 who launched their acting career last Halloween!

 

Staff have backgrounds in Childcare, Drama, Tourism, Food Science, Animal Husbandry & Veterinary to name but a few. All staff undergo First Aid, Animal Handling & customer service training on an ongoing basis.

Mary’s Farm has been in the Ward Family for over 400 years and her parents both in their nineties still live on the farm. The farm has primarily been involved in sheep, beef & tillage over the years.

Mary’s background is in Agriculture having studied both in Ireland & Europe in her formative years.

As well as animal knowledge Mary & Cathal have a wealth of experience with children, having reared 7 little darlings – 4 girls and 3 boys!
