Easter Bunny Egg Hunt at Ballygarry 



Ballygarry House lined up another egg-stra special family event at the Annual Easter Egg Hunt on Sunday, April 21st, in aid of Barnardos Children’s Charity.
The Easter Bunny, the guest of honour was having a hopping good time at the Easter Egg Hunt.  Almost 150 boys and girls met with Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White and the Easter Bunny before heading off on their garden hunt to gather Easter Eggs hidden throughout the gardens.  
Delighted children (and adults!) were treated to music and dancing, face painting and a fun and entertaining puppet show.
The annual Easter Egg Hunt has grown in huge popularity, with all money raised will be donated to Barnardos. This fundraising event has kindly been supported again this year by Cadburys Ireland, who generously supplied all of the Easter Eggs.
 “We are delighted to be involved in a family friendly charity event at Ballygarry House. Many of the staff donate their own time to make the day a success in aid of a worthy charity Barnardos” said Thys Vogels, Hotel Manager.
In addition to the hotel’s own Easter Egg Hunt, the hotel made a donation of chocolate Easter Eggs to the Children’s Ward at University Hospital Kerry & Bon Secours Hospital. 
Throughout the years, the management and staff of Ballygarry House have raised over €10,000 for a selection of local charities through fundraising alone.
