She walked the whole trail and was completely enthralled with the actors, the scenery, the fairy houses and being in the spooky woods! Made even more spooky by all the birds coming into roost as we were in the middle of the forest, just amazing, she was enthralled. We cannot recommend this experience enough, she has walked her little legs off and is currently snoring away after such a fun fun evening. Thank you Galgorm Fairy Trail!”Emma Rutherford, Facebook“My daughter and I visited today for the first time. Despite the rain we had the most magical visit. The trail had so many different things to take in and the fairy landscapes were so organic and imaginative. We came by train and the Galgorm grounds were a short taxi ride there and back to Ballymena station. I booked online using the website which was quick and easy and our £6 admission for the both of us was worth every penny and then some. Toadstool Cottage is such a cute base to have a picnic, where we bought hot chocolate and our own fairy door and magic dust. This was the first of many more visits. I couldn’t recommend this amazing spot enough.”Mel McConnell, Facebook“I visited the Fairy Trail with my husband and two children today and despite the damp weather we had a truly magical day. My daughter, who thinks she is a fairy herself was in awe of all the beautifully crafted fairy houses and even my son, who claims to be too grown up to believe in fairies, found himself enchanted. The fact that you have to follow a map and find clues makes it different from other fairy attractions we have visited and we thoroughly enjoyed it. My husband and I perhaps even more than the kids. Safe to say that after our visit this family definitely believes in fairies. “SUBMIT AN ANSWEREnter the Final Answer to win!
