It’s ship ahoy for a new ‘Playful Pirate Culture Trail’. Throughout July and August the City’s museums, galleries and visitor attractions will add pirate fun to their offering so families can explore culture, heritage and the city’s green spaces in an imaginative and playful way using the specially created Playful Pirate Culture Trail treasure map. The map includes a special treasure to be found at each site along with other challenges and lists 20 child friendly activities to do in the city from spotting pirate ships and cannons, to digging for hidden loot and searching for golden angels! In addition to a treasure hunt at each venue there will be pirate photo opportunities, fun facts and some fabulous suggested activities to try. The trail includes our own Blarney Castle plus Blackrock Castle Observatory, The Butter Museum, Cork City Gaol, Cork Public Museum, Cork Military Museum, Elizabeth Fort, Crawford Art Gallery, Nano Nagle Place, Glucksman Gallery, Old Cork Waterworks Experience, Shandon Bells and Tower, St Fin Barre’s Cathedral, St Peter’s Church, Triskel Christchurch and outdoor spaces/ picnic points including Fitzgerald Park, the Lough, and the Atlantic Pond. Pick up your map at any attraction or find it at playfulculturetrail.com.
