Durrow Scarecrow Festival

You may have the urge to get your hands moving with natural materials in a meditative manner, so we thought the Durrow Scarecrow Festival which is taking place in Co. Laois from July 30th to August 7th 2017  might offer you this opportunity to have some fun and get to work with materials stemming from nature and the great outdoors.

Over 19,000 people attend this festival where there is great competition and a spirit of originality in the making of scarecrows. The fantastic news is that one of our properties Clomantagh Castle, in Kilkenny, is only a fifteen minute drive from Durrow and would make a very special base for a big group looking to experience this festival together. Clomantagh Castle still has some availability over the festival period. Contact if you are interested
