5 Ways to Celebrate St Patrick’s Day at Blessingbourne

Are you looking for something family friendly to do this St Patrick’s day in Fermanagh or Tyrone? Why not experience Authentic Northern Ireland at Blessingbourne Estate in Fivemiletown! We have put together a list of the Top 5 St Patrick’s Day themed things to do in Blessingbourne and close by!

1.Visit St Patrick’s Chair and Well

A visit to the magical St Patrick’s Chair and Well is a must during your stay with us! Perched on the hillside in Altedaven Glen, this large ‘Chair’ is believed to have healing properties and local folklore says that if you sit and make a wish within days it will come true!

(We suggest that you make a wish for more holidays at Blessingbourne Estate!)

2. Search For a 4 Leaf Clover in Our Fairytale Woodlands

With 550 acres of fairy tale woodlands and gorgeous nature reserve there is plenty of space for you and the kids to have a ‘find the four leaf clover contest’!

Roam around our walking trails and keep a keen eye out for 4 leaf clovers, fairy’s and leprechauns, if you catch sight of one don’t forget to make a wish!

3. Meet The Animals  on Our Working Farm

Blessingbourne is proudly a snake free zone thanks to St Patrick who chased all the snakes out of Ireland!

So never fear! The only animals you will be feeding are our cheeky horse’s and ponies, beautiful peacocks and clucking hens.

4. Admire The 40 Shades of Green Around Blessingbourne

38, 39, 40! Our Estate owner Colleen has personally counted at least 40 shades of green on her many strolls around Blessingbourne.

Let us know how many you see during your visit with us on St Patrick’s weekend!
