Lough Key Forest and Activity Park - Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday Egg Hunting Event: (start between 3 and 4pm)

All are invited to work off all those chocolate calories while having fun hunting down a series of large "Easter Eggs" located around the Park on Easter Sunday afternoon the 24th April. Each "Easter Egg" indicates where a fun challenge has been set out for each group to "crack"!! Groups that successfully crack each Easter Egg challenge will then be awarded a small prize. Groups sizes are limited to 5 participants and so a group rate of €10 represents great value for money for an afternoon of fun in the Park.• There are only 20 group places available on the day, so intending participants are strongly advised to contact the visitor desk at 071 96 73 122 to book their group.• Lough Key has so much to offer with fun activities for all ages from the Boda Borg, (more team building hilarity), the Lough Key Experience and the Adventure Play Kingdom. Come and see the Easter Bunny display and enjoy a coffee, or have some lunch on the lovely sunny deck.
