Greenan Maze is set amidst the beautiful Wicklow hills on a pretty countryside farm. With two mazes, three museums, nature walks, woodlands, ponds, wildlife, farm animals, play areas, treasure hunt and fairy tree walk, there is plenty of fun for all ages. Families enjoy spending the day and The Irish Times designated it a Heritage Hotspot “it’s an antidote to urban living within easy reach of Dublin. The two metre high hedge maze and gentler solstice maze with stone circles are fun for all ages and the barn and bottle museum offer a look at farming in former times, as does the farmhouse museum with its traditional furniture and utensils”. The treasure hunt and fairy tree trail are great fun activities for kids but the large hedge maze is the highlight of most peoples day…..getting lost in the maze finds the kid in everyone. The craft shop sells hand made crafts, local and global crafts, antique bottles, gifts and environmentally friendly stationery and has a coffee dock and snacks available. The tea-rooms are open for busy periods and make home made cakes and goodies.
Greenan Maze host events throughout the year and group tours for all ages including Primary School Tours, Transition Year Bio-diversity Tours, Language School Tours, Kids Parties, BBQ’s and Corporate Family days out.
