Pick and carve a pumpkin from Kilruddery House and Gardens patch in their annual fun day celebrating Ireland’s most ancient festival.
Kilruddery House and Gardens are delighted to host a pick and carve pumpkin extravaganza this year for all ages to participate in an outdoor celebration of this ancient festival - a potion of pagan and Christian meanings, lore and legend! The earliest form was an end-of-summer festival, ‘Samhain’, often known as the Celtic New Year, to mark the beginning of the long winter nights. This weekend at Killruddery, they want to celebrate the light days of summer and dark nights of winter with our activity partners including Me And The Moon & The Cool Food School and host some fantastic seasonal workshops. Don’t miss the very special DIY Scarecrow Competition and the chance to unite with your family and get creative outside!
