Limerick’s first Sand Sculpture Festival for families and budding sculptors to work on their own creation. Kids can also be signed in to a supervised afternoon workshop.

Can you recreate a Museum object in sand?  Or do you have a fantasy castle in your mind? If you’ve got the ambition and the vision, then sign up below. We’ve got the sand 10 tonnes of it!

Children and adults work alongside artist instructors to build their own sculpture, which will be photographed and shared online in a VoxPop format, to find this year’s Sand Sculpture Festival champion!

Bring a sun hat, sun glasses, sun cream, water bottle and knee pads (if necessary).

There is also a bookable supervised session Kids Sand Sculpting, where kids can be left without a responsible adult for two hours.  See second booking form below.

Adults €20, Kids €10
