Easter in Cork

Easter is the perfect time for the family to take a well-deserved break. In Cork there is plenty to keep the whole family entertained throughout your break.

Easter Egg Hunts

Nothing sums up Easter better than an Easter Egg hunt. You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing one to go to while in Cork. Here is a selection of our favourite ones!


Leahy’s Open Farm

Located in Dungourney, Midleton, Leahy’s Open Farm is located a short 30-minute drive from Clayton Hotel Silver Springs. Every Easter the Farm comes alive with an Easter hunt and trailer ride through the forest. The Easter Bunny will be busy throughout the Easter weekend continuously dropping easter eggs in the barn. There will be a competition to win a free return trip to Leahy’s Open Farm. There is something for all ages with an egg and spoon race for Mum and Dad, an egg tossing competition for the teenagers and a welly throwing for the small ones.


Fota House, Arboretum & Gardens

The regency style Fota House and its grounds are the perfect place to celebrate Easter with all the family. Every Easter the grounds of Fota House is a hive of activity, an interactive kid’s camp is what awaits your little ones with lots of fairies and Easter fun, including dancing, games and theatre. Every child gets their own fairy wings, magic wand and Easter headpiece, sweet treats and refreshments. While the children are having fun, the adults can enjoy the grounds or a coffee in Bakestone Café.


Cork City Gaol

Cork’s former jail, Cork City Gaol, becomes a children’s paradise on Easter Sunday with its Easter Egg hunt. All children who take part will be given a map of the Gaol and must find all the hidden eggs; you could win a prize.
