About the Cork City Playful Culture Trail
You could be visiting Blarney Castle in the morning and Cork City Gaol in the afternoon! Ticketed attractions on the new trail to pick from include: Blarney Castle, Nano Nagle Visitor Centre, Cork City Gaol, The Butter Museum, St Finbarres’ Cathedral, the Old Cork Waterworks and the Blackrock Castle Observatory. There are also loads of free attractions to visit and 30 great ideas to get playful along the way!
Free playful culture trail kits are available from attractions and hotels in the city with a trail map, activity sheets, colouring pencils and more treats in a handy playful tote bag. There are numerous challenges to complete from scavenger hunts, to sketching tasks, crosswords and investigation work.
You can hop through labyrinths at St. Fin Barre’s Cathedral, design costumes for superheroes at Crawford Art Gallery, find your family’s Bog Age at the Cork Butter Museum, trace tombstones at St Peter’s Church, make daisy chains at Nano Nagle Place, enjoy the playground at the Old Cork Waterworks, star gaze at Blackrock Castle Observatory, climb the wishing steps at Blarney Castle and much, much more.
Make sure to keep a beady eye out for ‘Blaithín’ on your adventures – a cute and cuddly lizard who is the play trail mascot and will be playing hide and seek in lots of attractions.
