Kilmokea Gardens Pumpkin Treasure Hunt

Ireland is believed to be the birthplace of the Halloween festival. The Irish tradition dates back to the eighteenth century.
Halloween takes its roots from the old Celtic festival Samhain Eve, when it was believed that the link between the worlds of living and dead was at its strongest. Some scholars believe that Samhain was the Celtic new year.
Join our Celtic new year celebrations with our annual hunt around the Autumn gardens.

Unique School Tours
Emma & Mark Hewlett of Kilmokea Gardens, Andrew Wayland & Stephen Clarke of 3D Archery Ireland & Dawn Morley of Craft Central have teamed up to offer something a bit different for School Tours & Group outings. They hosted a ‘Taster Day’ at Kilmokea Gardens on 3rd December for teachers to experience their unique product. Teachers expressed how ‘wonderfully surprised and enthused they were to experience such a creative offering for their pupils’.
This idea has stemmed out of an in depth study into what teachers and parents are really looking for when planning their tours from school for a day.
The results which came back to us showed that schools are looking for the perfect educational resource for many aspects included in the junior infants to 6th Class curriculum. They are looking for a day for their pupils to discover and create, to experience and have fun. We are delighted to cater to their schools specific needs and they can mix and match the activities to their special requirements.
Please find below information about our collaborative idea for School Tours 2017.
