Garden Sculpture Hunt

Children visiting the Gardens and Gallery are offered the opportunity to take part in Lismore Castle Arts specially designed sculpture hunt at no additional cost. The hunt challenges children to look at and engage with the artworks as they make their way around the garden. On completion they can show their findings to the gallery staff and even get a small prize. Booklets can be collected upon arrival.
