Galway Spring Festival

"Slieve Aughty Centre Easter Spring Festival"

Slieve Aughty Centre Spring Festival 2018

Slieve Aughty Centre is a family run 4 star guest house, certified organic restaurant, party venue, and equestrian centre in East County Galway established in 1986. Set on 30 acres and surrounded on 3 sides by more than 2,000 acres of forest, Slieve Aughty Centre offers a wide range of activities for children of all ages in a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere.

Spring is a lovely time at the Slieve Aughty Centre as it seems to coincide with warmer weather, emerging flowers and longer days that inspire us 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 their friendly horses or ponies. 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 "Slieve Aughty Spring Festival"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.

  • Follow the Easter bunny trail to the Enchanted Forest on foot (or take a pony to the gates and back for €10 per child)
  • Visit the craft room to make and do
  • Pet the ponies and other animals
  • Try on some fairy wings or a clown wig
  • Spend quality time playing family games
  • Learn about wild rabbits at the nature hut
  • Play on the swing set in the playground
  • Get some delicious pancakes at The Three Towers Eco House and Organic Kitchen

Join Slieve Aughty any day during the Easter holidays and capture the joy of spring!
