Tír na Nollag, a magical ‘faery’ village, will open free of charge for all at Bishop Lucey Park in the heart of Cork City Centre for the duration of the Glow festival. Larger than life toy soldiers will guard a fort which hides this enchanted village. As visitors step into the Christmas fairytale, they will be greeted by magical faery inhabitants as they wander around a faery woodland where the Spirit of Christmas lives.
The woodland will be filled with faery houses, magical forest creatures, a Christmas throne and sleigh, a magical well, and the charm of childhood imagination brought to life. Make sure you peek through the windows in the faery village hall to see a magical world where Geese come to life in the fountain, snowflakes fall and faeries fly.
Original traditional Irish music has also been composed for Tír na Nollag so that visitors truly feel transported to magical place. Not only that, but kids will be able to post their letter to the North Pole, sprinkled with magical faery dust to ensure their wishes come true. Open from 4-8pm for the four weekends in the run up to Christmas, the journey through the park will take approximately 20 minutes.
Please note dates and times are subject to change.
