Killashee's fairy forest is deep in the woodlands for the children to explore. The fairy worksheet for the children can be collected at reception so they can follow the fairies and do the activities. Along with the Fairy Forest, Killashee has acres of manicured gardens and walkways to explore. Killashee Playground is located down by our fairy forest and includes a jungle gym, zipline, swings and much more.
This stunning creation of a butterfly garden was the brainchild of Emma Fogarty, Patient Ambassador with DEBRA Ireland. It was her dream to have a butterfly garden in a location where those affected by EB can go to enjoy peace & tranquillity. This striking garden is complete with a fountain, butterfly houses and gazebo. This beautiful garden will be a place where all people can come to reflect & get away from the stresses, they face in their everyday life
Killashee has a brand-new butterfly treasure hunt throughout the gardens. Make sure to go to the reception desk in the hotel to get your Butterfly map to find the clues. Explore the butterfly gardens, down through the playground around by the teddy bear picnic trail and the fairy forest to find the magically butterfly letters to spell the secret word on your map. Once you have all the clues go to reception to get your winning surprise. (Click Here to Butterfly Trail- Take out the Picture, no need for both)
