Halloween Camp at King John's Castle

Wednesday 30th October - Friday 1st November @ 10am -3pm
  • Archaeology Camp King John's Castle

This Halloween explore Limerick’s hidden past at King John’s Castle

Our camps provide a new and fascinating alternative to sports-themed camps and other school-break activities for children aged between 7 and 12 years old. If your child is a curious explorer with a thirst for knowledge about their past, why not let them try the School of Irish Archaeology? Our camps are run all year round, and they introduce children to the mysteries and adventures of our past in a fun, practical and hands-on way.

We use our ‘interactive’ approach to ensure your children get lots of time outdoors. This Halloween your children will take part in excavations and explore Limerick’s hidden past through haunted historical quests in places like Limericks Medieval Quarter and St Mary’s Cathedral.
