The annual Easter Egg Hunts at Johnstown open on Saturday 24 March. Once again
there will be a choice of indoor and outdoor egg hunts suitable for the whole family to
enjoy. The indoor egg hunt takes visitors around the displays of the Irish Agricultural
Museum and the outdoor hunts take place around Johnstown Castle - including mini egg hunt for
those who do not wish to walk too far.
All egg hunts will be available every day from Saturday 24 March until Easter Monday
on 2 April. There’s no need to book – just turn up between 11am and 4pm and have
a go. It’s great fun for families of all ages.
