Celtic Garden festive treat

This year the Celtic Prayer Garden at the IOSAS Centre, Derryvane, Muff will be transformed to provide a truly memorable Christmas experience for all the family.

Each little house in the garden will have its own Christmas theme and, in the tradition of the great Irish storytellers, will have characters telling the Christian stories behind some of our favourite Christmas traditions.

These include the story of St Nicholas, the Candy Cane, the Littlest Star and of course the greatest story ever told, the birth of Jesus.

The tranquil setting will be an oasis for families looking to escape the commercialism, hustle and bustle which can dominate this time of year. Take some time together to enjoy an experience which will have the children discussing the real Christmas story long after this event.

Families will enjoy a guided trail under starlight and a very special dramatic piece created especially for this event and performed by young people. Children can take part in craft activities including cookie decorating while the parents can take a few moments to enjoy a hot drink and festive treats at the IOSAS Centre Café.

The Celtic Garden Christmas Trail at the IOSAS Centre celebrating the traditions of Christmas past is a wonderful family Christmas present. Pre-booking 72 hours before the event is essential.
