Sunday, May 6th is the day the Teddy Bears have their picnic at Killruddery. The afternoon will be filled with fun and games and promises to be a great day out, so why not round up all the family (both human and teddy alike) and make your way to the Teddy Bears picnic?
Don’t be worried if your teddy or doll is not looking its best, the Teddy and Dolls Hospital will set up in a special tent beside the Beech Pond, where a team of professional paramedics and nurses will be on hand to restore your favourite dolls or teddies to their former glory.
Once everyone is feeling strong and brave, it will be time to take a walk through the beautiful Killruddery Gardens down to the woods to meet the Killruddery Bear Family (they’re very friendly, we promise!).
Mamma Bears and Pappa Bears will be very hungry so they may want to visit the Tearoom where they can feast on some delicious dishes including seasonal garden salads, mouth watering scones and cakes.
Baby Bears can tuck into some special treats including strawberry and chocolate spread crepes from the Crepe Box which is right next door to the Tea Room so they will have plenty of energy for the fun and games still to come. Mums and Dads can also enjoy a two piece jazz band in the Walled Garden while children frolic with their bears and enjoy Wicklow’s biggest sandpit.
Whether you’re out for an exciting day of family adventure or just a lovely picnic in the Gardens, the Teddy Bears Picnic s is a day you won’t want to miss! Normal garden entrance applies for this event at €6.50 per adult and children under 12 are free.
