The Easter Train will leave Rathwood Courtyard daily and head to the woods where the Easter Bunny has a secret mission: to deliver a basket of Easter eggs to a very special person! But the Bunny's mission might not be as easy to accomplish as originally thought, as Freddy Fox has been spotted in the forest acting suspiciously in recent days! Children helping the Easter Bunny and its friends will get a chocolate surprise as a reward for their great work!

Booking in advance is essential at  from Feb 17th. Egg hunt every hour from 11am - 3pm. Adults €10, Children €5 E W:
