Meet the Hens family breakfast basket
Our hens live a very happy life here in Killala. Most of them are rescue hens from Little Hill Sanctuary. Your breakfast basket can be delivered by Sanza, Gingy or Maggie and we’ll bring some hen food for you to feed them!
Basket: organic/fairtrade tea and coffee, homemade bread, 6 eggs from our hens, muesli mix or organic oats, pancake mix (just add milk and eggs) or omelette mix (cheese, onion, fresh herbs, spinach or veg in season), fruit compote or fresh fruit salad depending on season, homemade jam, bread, milk and local honey.
Two sessions of yoga/meditation for the family:
Our lives are busy. Our children’s lives are busy. Our family lives are busy. It’s difficult to take time out to sit together, listen, talk and connect. A tailored session will consider any elements that you want to focus on and you’ll have lots of fun experiencing yoga as a family.
Half day seashore forage and cockle hunt!
Spend a few hours under the huge Mayo skies, visit a deserted island, explore rock pools, spot seals, dig for cockles, search for mussels, all the while learning a little about the wildlife in this beautiful Special Area of Conservation. We can cook up a few foraged goodies afterwards so you can have a taste or you can take them away for a foraged supper! Wellies and cockle hunting tools supplied 😊 We use Best Practices when foraging. For more information, reviews etc, see https://www.facebook.com/WildAtlanticCulturalTours/
Arty crafty & kite-making session
Blow the cobwebs away – spend a few hours getting crafty with the kid/kids having fun, being creative – then take your kite off to the beach or to the park! This workshop is about getting involved, no matter how young or old, crafty or not! It’s about having fun, not creating perfection. Drawing, painting, making portraits clay modelling, recycled art, kite-making – we’ll tailor the workshop to you and your family. 2-3 hours of messy fun so don’t wear your good clothes! All materials supplied.
