Wizard School package full of enchantment for the little ones: Book now for a magical October mid-term break

A magical experience like no other, the Wizard School at Ashford Castle will have the little ones simply spellbound. Full of witchcraft and wizardry, movies and fun, this is the perfect break for the entire family with plenty of supervised activities included.

Wizard School Offer

From €2940*, a family of four will enjoy a two-night break in a beautifully decorated Deluxe Queen* room, with breakfast each morning in preparation for a full programme of wizardry-themed fun over the two days.

The children will adore creeping through the Castle grounds to visit the hiding place of Dingle the Owl, Ashford’s resident eagle owl, and tapping into their inner artist at the Chamber of Art.

As part of the experience, your little wizards will also become the House Elves’ little helpers at the cookery school, followed by an afternoon at the Chamber of Witchcraft and Wizardry with lots of magic and surprises in store.

On both days, the children will enjoy a delicious dinner in the Wizard School and a very special movie evening, the perfect end to their action-packed day.

Every thought has been put into the detail for parents too, as the offer also includes a fine dining meal on both evenings for the adults in the historic George V Dining Room, to enjoy a little time out, while the children are immersed in their fully-supervised activities. The adults will also have a variety of activities to choose from with over 25 options on site including fishing, falconry, horse-riding and many more.

But parents won’t miss out on the wizardry fun, as the forbidden forest treasure hunt is not to be missed and is bound to captivate the entire family.
