Had another great day at Gullighans, kids (aged 2&6) had a ball. They loved searching around for the fairies and looking around at the animals and enjoying the stories the owners were telling us. Will definitely be back again, great to get your imagination going!

We have a lovely day in Gillighan`s World today. The host was very pleasant. It is quite out of the way but I liked the fact that it is not over commercialised. The kids loved quiz and it did take us about 1 1/2 hours...More

Brought my 10 year old who loves fairies and had a great time walking through the gardens and going to see the Fairy ring. Some great view on tip of the hill.
