A truly family friendly Halloween event!If ghosts and ghouls aren’t your kind of thing this Hallowe’en, bring the family to Killruddery for a weekend of bright and seasonal fun! Go to the pumpkin patch in the Walled Garden and choose a pumpkin of your own with help from our farmer. Then you can design it and have it carved out by a master craftsman! Afterwards, head over to the scarecrow plots, where they have all the materials you’ll need to design and build your own scarecrow to enter in the scarecrow competition!
Scarecrow architects and engineers can make their creations’ heads in advance and bring them along on the day. An ideal day out for all the family and a great chance for the children to get creative outdoors before winter.
