Birthday Parties

If you want your child's birthday party to go down in history as the most epic party of all time!! Then Squirrel's Scramble is your answer.

Come to Squirrel's Scramble for a legendary birthday party your child will remember!

Your group (all participants must be min age 9 years) will have an hour and a half of zipping and swinging through the trees followed by half an hour in one of our sheltered party areas with wooden seats and tables. We don’t cater for food or drink but can highly recommend the food stalls at the Killruddery Farm Market (Saturdays only). All known local pizza places deliver to us and you are more than welcome to bring your own food as well if you like.
