2/ Complete the Fairy Trail at Galgorm Castle

Things to do over half term - Ballymena Today

The Galgorm Castle Fairy Trail launched here in march 2017, with the original idea springing to us back in summer 2016. Our team here at Brilliant Trails already based in the Galgorm Estate , had an idea to create something magical using the scenic grounds of the castles that already surrounded us. 

Our aim was to encourage families & friends to enjoy a day in the outdoors. By giving you an experience that was not only about spending quality time with loved ones but also beneficial in giving our immune systems a boost , with a healthy dose of vitamin D and fresh air!

3/ Head to the Monster Manor at W5

Monster Manor is back! And it’s even spookier than last year!! Our singing pumpkins, dancing skeletons, floating ghosts, witches and monsters have been joined by some new phantom friends this year.

We’ve uncovered some new rooms in the mansion where new scares await! It may be really spooky and a little bit eerie, but Monster Manor is a whole lot of fun. This Autumn, are you and your family brave enough to discover what lurks within MONSTER MANOR?

Weekends from 30th September
Daily from 28th October – 5th November
