FUNFEST is proud to say that at the heart of our programme of events is inclusion for ALL. On the day we will have a Sensory Zone available for children who may need time to chill out and recharge. While all activities are suitable for every child there will be a programme of events especially for children with additional needs, to ensure no child misses out on the fun of the day.
Your ticket covers entry into the main festival area and all activities within this space.
There will be food and beverage vendors on-site in the Walled Gardens – as no festival is complete without good food!
Gates open at 12 pm and close at 6 pm.
Children must be accompanied by an adult. Children under 1yr are FREE.
Reduced ticket prices are available for Strokestown Park Membership holders.
