Magical weekends in store at Dun

THE HOUSE of Dun is hosting a series of magical events every weekend throughout November and December.

Although the house is now closed for the season, younger visitors are being invited to hunt for the mischievous House of Dun fairies which are hiding throughout the grounds. During the hunt, they will also help to solve the riddle of the fairy’s name.

Property manager John McKenna said: “This year we’re offering our visitors a new autumn experience. Come along at the weekend and do a spot of Christmas shopping from our excellent range of decorations and gifts, then our younger visitors can pick up a trail guide and help solve the riddle of the fairies. They will receive a small treat for their trouble.”

It costs £2 for children to take part in the trail which will run in the grounds on Saturday and Sundays throughout November and December.

For those looking to explore the darker side of Dun’s history, there is also a trail which takes visitors through some of the ghostly goings-on which are said to have occurred at the site.

Also for the first time, a Christmas Shop will be open in the courtyard at weekends providing an excellent range of cards, decorations and gifts for all the family.
