Overview
More
The visit includes 15 minutes of storytelling and an introduction to how the last leprechauns of Ireland became a protected species by the E.U..This is done in the story room across from the cavern at Shalom B.B.You may park there. This is followed by a visit below the ground where leprechauns and fairies converge in the morning as the sun rises. The visit is predominately indoors and perfect for a wet day.

2 adults and 3 kids cost €28 for just over an hours entertainment. Kids loved it and Kevin is very likeable. Each kid gets a leprechaun ornament included in price. Recommended

I took my 3 & 6 year olds there and wasn't disappointed. Kevin took us on the tour and is highly entertaining. He's a great (funny) storyteller and the kids were sucked right in. Well worth a visit for little visitors to Carlingford.
