Slieve Aughty Centre Spring Festival 2023

Spring Festival 2023 – Saturday 1st April to Sunday April 16th

Visit or stay at Slieve Aughty during the Easter holidays and capture the joy of spring at the Spring Festival Galway.
Spring is a lovely time at the centre as it coincides with warmer weather, emerging flowers and longer days that inspire us to shake out the dust of winter and get busy.

Take a short walk to the Enchanted Forest and see if you can spot some fairy folk. Find out who else lives in the forest following the Who Am I? animal cards in the Enchanted Forest. Visit Winnie, our pot belly pig, and book a ride on one of our friendly horses or ponies (from €10 for pony rides one way to the Enchanted Forest for children ages 5 and up). With more than 2,000 acres of Coillte Forest beside the centre, longer walks and cycling routes are possible for the more adventurous. Why not hire a donkey and have a picnic by the river?

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, get their face painted, and the whole family can try out a silly “spring” wardrobe and take some family photos. The playground is a big hit for the little ones.

Pizza Party Fridays are a great start to any weekend.

Make the festival part of an unforgettable Spring getaway and stay in our cosy family accommodation.  Book a spring family break.
