Wildlife events at Johnstown

The Irish Agricultural Museum and the Irish Wildlife Sanctuary have joined forces to offer an exciting programme of events for children covering a range of wildlife themes.

Aimed at accompanied children aged 5-12 years, the events will take place at the Museum at Johnstown Castle on the first Saturday of each month from 11am until 1pm.

The events will be fun and 'hands on' involving both indoor and outdoor activities making full use of the wonderful environments at Johnstown Castle Gardens. Designed to inspire interest in and respect for the natural world around us the events will be delivered by the knowledgeable and dedicated staff and volunteers of the Irish Wildlife Sanctuary.

Some of the events include a bug hunt, a bird talk and search, a garden trail and nesting and roosting sites.

Advance booking is essential and tickets are available from the reception desk of the Irish Agricultural Museum or by phoning 053 918 4671. The cost is €10 per child (€8 for family membership pass holders). Children must be accompanied by an adult and there is no admission charge for the accompanying adult.
