Barretstown are delighted to announce the return of the Summer’s biggest family event as the fairies magically descend upon Lough Boora Discovery Park for the highlight of the family events calendar. This year’s event promises to be even more exciting with a World Record Attempt for the largest gathering of Fairies in one stunning location.

Get those Fairy Wings and Wands ready!

Kicking off from 12.30 – 3.30pm on 22nd July, event-goers of all ages are encouraged to dress up in their best Fairy costumes and play their part in the first Irish World Record Attempt to have the largest group of fairies.

Bord na Móna’s Fairy Festival promises to be a truly magical day out for the entire family with activities to entertain kids of all ages across three stages, not to mention the stunning Lough Boora Fairy Door Trail which is ready to be explored. Stage One will see The Irish Fairy Door Company’s resident fairies entertaining the masses with enchanting fairy tales, parachute games, giant bubbles and magnificent puppet shows with the famous Fairy Clodagh. There will be a magical fairy note workshop where every child can write a special note and hide it inside their own balloon and release it at home.

Stage Two features a stunning arts and crafts area where kids can make everything fairy-related from Fairy Pencil Toppers, Fairy Wands, Fairy Pencil Toppers, Finger Fairies and Stick Fairies – an interactive hub destined to be a success with craft lovers of all ages.

The third stage will feature a kids disco with special dance lessons from our expert fairy dancers.
