Things to Do in Wexford with Kids over Easter 2018

The Easter holidays are here, the evenings are longer and finally, just finally there seems to be a hint of Spring. The kids are off for two weeks so it’s time to get adventuring and seek out some fun. Here are some ideas of Easter themed events that are on throughout County Wexford, which will you choose?

The Irish National Heritage Park in Wexford is holding its annual Easter Egg Hunt on Friday 30th and Saturday 31st. The Easter Egg Hunt runs throughout the day from 9.30am until 4.30pm. Admission to the hunt is €5 per child and each child receives an Easter egg (Book online here) There’s also an egg decorating class on Thursday 29th, it’s from 1- 4pm and costs €15 per child, priceless if it means you don’t have to do it at home!
