Easter in Mid Ulster

Spring in Northern Ireland

We’re teaming up again with Cadbury to offer you a cracking Easter experience! Get ready to wriggle your whiskers and go on a bunny adventure with a Cadbury Egg Hunt at one of our amazing places in Mid Ulster.

Join the Cadbury Hunt this Easter in Mid Ulster

From spring woodlands at Springhill, to historic houses and farmyards at The Argory and Ardress and wooded glens at Wellbrook Beetling Mill, there’s lots of Egg Hunts and fun to choose from around Mid Ulster – guaranteeing a fun-filled Easter for everyone.

Little ones will receive a delicious Cadbury chocolatey treat at the end of each completed Egg Hunt, and every single Cadbury Hunt will help support our special places for future generations to explore.

Throughout the Easter holidays the whole family can enjoy wide open spaces perfect for exploration, brimming with wildlife and historic houses full of enchanting characters and stories; everything you need for great family fun during the holidays. 

Gemma Elliott, Visitor Experience Manager for the Mid Ulster properties commented 'The Cadbury Hunts add an element of fun to the traditional egg hunt, with plenty to see, do and learn. Whether you're a child or simply young at heart, adventure is sure to lie ahead'.

Extra fun during Easter at The Argory

Throughout the Easter holidays the little ones can go wild in our adventure play park. Have a go on the jungle climbing frame, low ropes and balancing logs, rope swings, bridges and zip line.
