Galway

Families with dogs will have a ball in Knocknacarra on Easter Sunday with MADRA's Doggy Easter Egg Hunt.  There will be lots of treats for those with four legs as well as two throughout the day, and all proceeds will go to supporting rescue dogs.  If you don’t have a dog, don’t worry. You can borrow one for the day as there will be lots of MADRA dogs available and eager to help you sniff out the clues!


Meath

Mini-detectives are required in Ashbourne to solve the mystery of who stole the Easter Egg.  Turn your kids into CSI detectives on Easter Sunday in Tayto Park. All visitors will receive an Easter Egg for their help. Yum - Chocolate and Taytos, a winning combination. 

Cork

Leahy’s Open Farm near Midleton is always a favourite for families with small children. This year’s Easter activities include egg-throwing competitions and an egg and spoon race for parents. Might need to start practicing…

 

Down the road in Fota Wildlife park there is a jam-packed program of events.  Hourly magic shows, wildlife talks and face painting amongst the animals should keep your little monkeys happy! 

Kilkenny

For those who prefer to be a little more active on Easter Sunday, Tullyroan Athletics Club in Co. Kilkenny are hosting an Easter Sunny Bunny Run. Everyone is welcome to take part whether you are a runner, walker, assisted runner or wheelchair athlete. Of course after all that exercise you can enjoy all the Easter Eggs provided guilt free! 

Roscommon

Strokestown will be a hive of activity over the Easter weekend.  Along with an Easter Egg hunt, there will be a custard pie puppet show in Strokestown House.  See the baby lambs and catch the parade in the village at 3pm. 

Dublin

Supporting charity doesn’t get much tastier than the Barnardos Cadbury's Easter Egg Hunt in Merrion Square.  Your children will have a ball, and every cent from ticket sales will go directly to support Barnardos’ valuable work with children and families around the country.

The GAA Museum is hosting a series of Easter Egg Hunts for families at Croke Park.   A guided tour around the stadium will bring you behind-the-scenes, including a visit to the Players’ Lounge, team dressing rooms, warm-up area and pitch-side walk-way. There is also a trip to the media centre to enjoy a bird’s eye view of the stadium. Pick up clues along the way to find your Easter Egg!

 

Anyone with older children might like to sneak a little bit of learning into the weekend. Glasnevin Cemetery are holding Easter 1916 Rising Tours that promise to be an interesting family day out.  A re-enactment of Patrick Pearse's oration at the graveside of Jeremiah O'Donovan Rossa is sure to impress and maybe keep a few Crème Eggs in your bag, just in case!
