ALWAYS a family favourite, Westport House will be unveiling some fun new attractions this Easter.
They'll be kicking off the season with amazing new adventure and attractions at the Pirate Adventure Park, opening on April 13.
They include the Jump Around (hop on this ride for a delightful time and you may even hear a ‘Ribbit'), a mini ferris wheel (get comfy in your mini ferris wheel pod while you enjoy the views), and a new vortex tunnel (an awe-inspiring virtual tunnel experience you won’t forget).
The children will also get to pan for gem stones (when Pirate Queen Gracey was last on the estate legend has it she lost her treasure chest, leaving behind rare gems and crystals), or try to hook a duck (try and hook a duck to be in with a chance of winning some great prizes).
You can also visit the Mini Westport Play Village (located in the indoor coach house, allowing kids to use their imagination to be whoever they want to be, from a shopkeeper, hairdresser to an hotelier.).
Or why not try disc golf (similar to traditional golf, but rather than using clubs and balls, using a flying disc – frisbee - the challenge is to complete each hole on the course in the fewest number of strokes).
There's also a new 3.5k parkway walking trail to be enjoyed.
On Easter Sunday, April 21, guests are invited to join Pinkie Rabbit for the annual Easter egg hunt, and on Sunday, April 28, Westport House will host its annual free season open day in aid of charities As I Am and Regina’s Fight for Life, with live entertainment at Gracy’s Pizzeria on both days to enjoy.
After all that fresh-air and adventure, guests are invited to the on-site Gracy’s Pizzeria and Bistro to enjoy the all-new menu, including mouth-watering wood-fired pizzas and a tasty, wholesome kids menu. You can also try The Islands Restaurant in Hotel Westport if you’re looking for fine dining or go all out with Victorian afternoon tea served by your very own Victorian maid in the formal drawing room of Westport House (pre-booking essential).
In Westport House itself, there's a new audio tour app now available for all visitors, telling the story of the family behind the house.
And if you want to make a break of it, guests staying overnight in Hotel Westport or in the caravan and camping park get 25% off a day ticket to Westport House or Pirate Adventure Park and free entry the following day.
