Tuam Herald March 2015

Ship arriving at The Orchard.


Over the last few weeks Jim has been busy building a live size pirate ship in the Secret Garden for the children to play with. It features a bow for the captain and a dungeon for the prisoners or to safely put away the loot and treasure captured on the long journeys.

It proved to be an instant hit with all the children.

Family Fun Day 2017

Saturday June 24th 2 to 6 pm

(Weather permitting)


Visit the pet farm, discover our secret garden, play in our playgrounds and dig in our sandpit. There will be lots of extra activities on the day. Bouncy castle, face painting, penalty shootout, pin the tail on the donkey, lucky dip, Bar-B-Q to name a few. For parents it’s a great opportunity to catch up with each other and for new parents a great way to view our facilities and meet out staff. The admission and the activities are free. All you have to do is to come down, enjoy and hope for a sunny day.
