Europe’s leading Tourist Attraction 2019

Go beyond the stereotypes at EPIC

You won’t find leprechauns or pots of gold here, but you’ll discover that what it means to be Irish expands far beyond the borders of Ireland through the stories of emigrants who became scientists, politicians, artists and even outlaws all over the world.

During this session you'll learn through sensory play and exploration, so be sure to wear clothes suitable for mess and mayhem! There will be free tea and coffee provided by Bakehouse CHQ, as well as some lovely treats and a chance to sit back, relax and have a chat with other families.

This event is suitable for children aged 6 months - 3.5 Years.
