The Connacht Hotel


Easter 2023 is going to be eggshellent, and The Connacht Hotel wants all our visitors to have a cracking Easter family break in Galway.

Easter is a really fun time of year – and Galway is a fantastic place to make the most of it. If you’re looking for a magical, family-friendly experience, the City of Tribes is the place to discover it!

Easter Fun at Sliabh Aughty Centre

Why not start with a visit to the Slieve Aughty Centre in Loughrea, just a short drive east of The Connacht Hotel? From April 1st to April 16th, the Children’s Spring Festival Galway will be taking place, and there’s lots to engage with there and keep everyone happy.

You’ll walk through the Enchanted Forest in search of fairies, meet Winnie the wonderful pig, and get up close to some lovely horses and ponies. Plus, there will be plenty of arts and crafts for the little ones to enjoy, including face painting and more.

Easter Special – Turoe Pet Farm

Also taking place from April 1st to April 16th is the eggstravaganza of Easter fun at Turoe Pet Farm. This promises to be a day out to remember because there’ll be plenty to see and do. You might just meet the Easter Bunny, you’ll see the wonderful animals who call this farm their home, and you’ll enjoy the fresh air of the great outdoors.

Plus, there will be lots to keep the whole family entertained, including the Inflatable City, Jungle Town, and Easter egg giveaways.

Family Easter Egg Hunt – Brigit’s Garden

If you’d like to make your holiday really special, you’ll have to dive into the Easter Egg Hunt in Brigit’s Garden. A fun and exciting way to while away the hours, it’s all happening on April 9th and 10th between 12 pm and 4 pm.

Take a spin out to Rosscahill for a visit and follow the egg trail in search of chocolate goodness. With two hunts to enjoy (the Mini for younger kids and the Mighty for older ones), it’s ideal for everyone to take part in. Plus, the whole family can enjoy face-painting, and get hands-on with interesting arts and crafts.
