Preparing for your Rathwood Event:

  • Please arrive 30 minutes before your designated ticket time. Our events start on time!
  • It is not essential to print your ticket. You can produce it on your mobile device on the day.
  • Our events are mainly based outdoors so please dress appropriately on the day.
  • Ensure all event photos are picked up before you leave the premises. 
  • Each child's free hot chocolate can be collected from the Merry Tree Restaurant.
  • Book in advance to avoid disappointment as we may not be able to accommodate you on the day.
  • We also have an indoor and outdoor play area, the maze of Ireland and woodland walks, so allow yourself plenty of time on the day to enjoy all of our other attractions we have to offer too. We recommend pre-booking the Ark Indoor Playcentre online

Our Woodlands

Take a short stroll to the lake to feed the ducks and geese, or explore the looped 'Molloy Walk'. The Rathwood Forest Walks are very easy trails, suitable for walkers of all ages and abilities.

The woodland walks expand over 4km and benches are placed at regular intervals so you can have a rest or simply absorb the tranquillity of the forest.

 Deer, mink, rabbits, foxes, pheasants and dragonflies are some of the residents and regular visitors to the Rathwood Forest. The Forest Walks are an ideal activity for families that enjoy nature, the outdoors and a bit of fresh air.

The walking trail to the lake is wheelchair accessible.
