Walking through the lovely woodland it is easy to see how children might be enthralled with anticipation of meeting woodland faries around every corner and even sneaking up on the woodland wildlife. Well worth a visit!

We went as saw it advertised and paid upfront, really disappointed my 2 Yr old was asking where all the faeries were. There was a lot of broken glass on the trail my 1 yo picked some of it up, not really good enough.

Lots of thought and effort has gone into creating this. I wish my children were younger. There is even a 'real' pot of gold. Games to play along the way too.

We visited this lovely trail during our Easter holiday in Westport. It is a short walk through wood which is fool of magic. You can see small tiny faerie houses, bridges, doors, ghosts...it is fool of games and entertainment for children and also for adults....More
