Now in its sixth year, the Enchanted Garden is quickly becoming recognised as one of the leading Winter Light Festivals in Ireland. These unique Japanese Gardens are lit at night by a sea of twinkling lights, animal sculptures and dramatic tree and foliage lighting, all creating a magical winter wonderland. Visitors young and old will be mesmerised as they walk through the gardens and are greeted at every turn by stunning displays. The Winter fairy will walk through the gardens this year and adults and children may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of her as she magically appears in the Japanese Ceremonial Teahouse. Visitors can warm their hands by the open fire and enjoy takeaway tea, coffee  hot chocolate and Gluhwein as they follow the paths on a one way system through 1.5 acres of light features.  The Victorian Garden adds old world charm to the experience and will fuel the imagination for all who visit. This event is suitable for Adults and Children of all age groups. The Winter Light Festival (Enchanted Garden) runs from early 3rd December 2021 to 9th January 2022.
