Earth Quest

Engage the children and have lots of fun on the kids’ Earth Quest trail. Working as a team, you will navigate the 11 acres and solve science-based challenges on your quest. There are several science-based installations around the Garden including a water engineering play area*, a pedal-power generator, a geodesic camera obscura and a weather station to reveal a few. Families discover, observe and identify things as they explore Brigit’s Garden, recording their findings on our special “Earth Quest” guide. Children can collect a free Earth Quest guide at Reception. (le fáil trí Ghaeilge fresin) Suitable for children with an accompanying adult.

Natural Play Area

In the natural play area, climb up on the ‘whale’ and slide down, run through the willow tunnels, swing on the rope ladders and create a castle in the sand-pit. New for 2022 – reach for great heights on our 20ft rope-climbing tower! There’s plenty of fun and freedom to be had in the Playground, and in the rest of Brigit’s Garden too.

Don’t miss the Fairy Village basket swings, stepping logs, see-saw, sitting on the bog-wood throne, exploring the fairy fort, following the secret trail through the woodland, fishing for bugs in the pond and discovering the whispering pipes in the stone chamber!
