The Giant's Lair Storytrail
We designed and developed the most ambitious children’s arts project ever commissioned in Northern Ireland: the Giant’s Lair, an innovative magical living storybook, taking visitors on an unforgettable trail of intertwined fairy houses and arts features creating a fantastical childhood land of mystery, dragons, giants, witches and fairies, all inspired by the rich tapestry of local legend and mythical folklore on over a mile of woodlands at Slieve Gullion Forest Park.
The Giant’s Lair is open to all: boys, girls, elves and fairies alike. Follow in the footsteps of Flynn, the mischeavous fairy with one important job: not to allow anyone to wake Slieve Gullion. It might look like a mountain but it’s really a sleeping giant! Drop in for a cup of dandelion tea, grab a seat at the Giant’s table, stroll along to the Ladybird House and sneak a peek at local witchy trickster, the Cailleach Beara.
The Giant’s Lair is an multi-award outdoor attraction for children from far and wide, capturing a genuine sense of enchantment and mystery in the beautiful setting of Slieve Gullion Forest Park.
The Giant’s Lair is open seven days a week and is free of charge. For regular updates, check our Facebook page.
