For those interested in nature, discovery and adventure, Birr Castle Gardens & Science Centre is the place for you. The team at Birr have created the “Family Quest” which will take the young and maybe not so young explorers on a journey through time, from great engineering feats to wildlife discoveries, and many more highlights in between.
Quest included in admission price and memberships. Suitable for all ages. Quest will be available from reception. Pre-booking not required.
The new Quest will return in Spring 2020!
