Fairy Tree Trail at Ardgillan Castle
Ardgillan Castle has launched the newest addition to its already spectacular parkland with the creation of a Fairy Tree Trail. this project was created in collaboration with Fingal County Council and is free of charge. The trail is dotted around the woodland area of the walled garden and offers visitors a chance to learn about the different varieties of trees growing at Ardgillan. Throughout the trail there are informative panels with interesting information on the many species of tree growing in the park. A map and quiz has been created to coincide with the trail and is available by clicking the link below, or at reception in Ardgillan Castle. The added bonus on this trail is that you might spot a fairy hiding or living in one of the beautiful trees!
The team aim to grow the Fairy Tree Trail by creating a magical woodland area which will encourage lots of new fairies to come and live at Ardgillan. Balbriggan men’s Shed has created homes to house all our new fairy arrivals!!!
The trail is open all year round in the park.
