National Playday on Saturday 13 July at Kilkenny Castle Park

July 13 @ 11.00am - 1.00pm

National Playday 2024 organised by Kilkenny County Council takes place on Saturday 13 July 2024. The theme this year is “fun for families”. This FREE event kindly hosted by the OPW and Kilkenny Castle will start at 11am and finish at 1pm. The Community Team will be based near the playground, do come along to visit the various workshops on the day including face painting, a magician, art and biodiversity workshops. Along with the event partners – Healthy Ireland and CYPSE we aim to support the importance of creating time and space for families to have fun together.

Come and be a part of this community event and most importantly have some fun!

Play is vital to supporting children’s development, learning and wellbeing. It encourages a sense of adventure and discovery, helping young minds to better understand the world around them through fun and creative ways. This National Play Day is an opportunity for Kilkenny County Council and our partners to invite children and their families to come together in the grounds of Kilkenny Castle and take part in a range of activities that everyone can enjoy. I hope you and your family can join us on the day!
