Rathwood set for Ireland’s largest Easter Eggs-travaganza

Leading destination and activity store, Rathwood has launched Ireland’s largest Easter Extravaganza.  This is the second year, Rathwood will host its special Easter train event and due to its phenomenal popularity they have doubled the number of tickets available. Over 10,000 people are expected to visit Rathwood’s Easter train over the season which will run from April 12th to April 21st and tickets are on sale now.

Following the success of its ‘Santa Train’, which last year sold over 45,000 tickets, the family-run business has firmly established itself as Ireland’s leading venue for family activities. The Easter train will see children and adults hop on board the Rathwood express for a magical one hour experience.

Visitors will journey through the enchanted forest and help the Easter bunny on his quest for Easter eggs. Along the way, children will encounter a host of magical characters from much loved fairy tales including Humpty Dumpty. The magical train will pull into its final stop where children will be treated to a wonderful tea-party with the Mad Hatter and some of his other zany friends.

“We look forward to welcoming families from all over Ireland to our Easter Extravaganza, which we hope they will find to be egg-cellent! As a family business, it is so important to us that we help create lasting memories throughout important family holidays” said James Keogh, MD of Rathwood.

“This year we are celebrating 20 years in business and we are committed to offering a top class destination to visit for special times of the year. We are extremely proud to have reached this significant milestone and a lot has changed over the past couple of years but we have continued to adapt to the changing landscape”
