Hello there!

Its been a wonderful summer, thanks to all of you who visited Killruddery and took part in the various events. We have had really positive feedback from many of you and have got to know so many more people this summer who have taken advantage of our Friends of Killruddery membership pass, lovely to see that it does work as families have embraced Killruddery as their local back garden!

We still have a few lovely events for 2011.


Children and their parents are invited to join artist Genevieve Harden in The Stable Studio to get creative making their very own Halloween character, when the costume is ready you can join Mairead Carty to free up your movement in a mime workshop so that you can move in your new character to the best of your ability. When all is ready, a wild and terrifyingly hilarious trail will be lead into the Gardens to the tune of Monster Mash. And not to forget some family/team times we provide you with a pumkin and tools so you can make your family masterpiece Halloween pumpkin and take it home, Job done! The Tearoom will of course be open serving Pumpkin Soup, Mulled Wine and lots more.
