Halloween at Kilruddery House and Gardens - Things to do in Wicklow

This weekend Kilruddery House in Bray, Co. Wicklow opened it's gates for some Halloween fun in their gorgeous gardens.

The Pumpkin Patch, which I was reliably informed lay claim to over one thousand pumpkinswas set up so that families could choose and design their own pumpkin, before dropping it off to be perfectly cut out by a team of hard-working experts. 

The kids loved rummaging through them all, taking the utmost care to pick the biggest, bestest one. 

Next it was design time. Just look at the concentration.

Then, whilst someone else did all the hard work we got to wander around the stunning gardens and meet the scarecrows that had been lovingly created by others over the weekend. 

Some of them were incredibly life like too.

Once we were done wandering we picked up our finished pumpkins and off we went...

.... leaving any misbehaving children behind of course.

 What do you mean that's not what they're used for?
