This Christmas do something a little bit different and go back to your roots with a visit to The Holly King.

In ancient times it was believed a seasonal battle took place between the Oak King in the Summer and the Holly King in the Winter.

A visit to The Holly King this Christmas in his indoor sacred grove at Fore, North Westmeath, will be an unique natural experience where children will learn about trees, receive as a gift, an Oak Tree sapling, a Candy Cane treat and get to make a Christmas Wish in the Well. 

The visit is suitable for children over 4 years and the grove is located below the stone cut Fore Abbey Tearooms which will also be open for refreshments.

You can also enjoy a walk around the 13 th Century Fore Abbey or take the 3km Fore Abbey Trail where there is an Oak plantation.
