Kids Activities

Kids fun races (3pm) & Kids GAA 
Always great fun, sign your kids up for the egg & spoon,a game of football or toddler dash.

Lots of fun activities to keep them occupied and entertained 

Jake the Magician (1- 2pm)​


Always a hit with the kids.

A man that needs no introduction, he introduced Christianity to Ireland and banished the snakes and is probably responsible for more hangovers that anyone else in history!
