About Cruinniú na nÓg

Cruinniú na nÓg is a nationwide initiative of the Creative Ireland Programme of the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht and is presented in partnership with RTÉ and the Local Authorities. Cruinniú na nÓg is a national day of creativity for children and young people, enabling them to express and develop their creativity through a range of cultural activities such as theatre, art and music workshops, readings and screenings.

As last year, Wicklow is organising numerous events across the country, such as Russborough House, Tinahely, Arklow, Blessington, Greystones and Bray. So get ‘doing’, ‘making’ and ‘creating’!


Join us for a Free Creative Family Fun Day at Russborough House and Parklands
on June 15th from 10.00am to 6.00pm with a carnival atmosphere.

We are delighted to bring you this fantastic line up at Russborough House and Parklands one of Wicklow’s highly valued historic houses and public amenities.

Join us and the range of prestigious artists throughout the day. Pre-booking is advised for individual sessions or alternatively soak up the atmosphere and enjoy a family walk, face painting and lots of drop by activities while siblings are busy at other activities. We have a range of family friendly attractions and artist events throughout the day! From bird and wildlife demonstrations, workshops and creative exploration stations where children can get hands on, we have it all.
Watch out too for some mysterious characters, our creative treasure hunt, and vintage carnival attractions.

All ages are welcome to this spectacular programme of high quality and diversity. Wheelchair access throughout except on events which specifically list not wheelchair accessible.
Russborough has an excellent playground, voted one of the top playgrounds in the country by the Irish Times; a magical fairy island, a maze, parkland walks, walled garden and artist studios, there’s no better place to get fresh air. Bring your own picnic or purchase from the Brambles Cáfe, Ice-cream Shop and outdoor BBQ.

Please allow 30 minutes to park your car and arrive at your event
