As soon as the Easter holliers roll around we mums need to have a selection of activities safely in our back pocket, because God forbid we let the kids get bored. And we know what kids do when they’re bored – they write on walls, take up smoking, join a rock band and wear tight trousers.
Which is why we’re almost certainly taking them on an Easter trip to the amazing Butlers Chocolate Experience
in Clonshaugh, Dublin 17. It’s basically Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
come to life because kids get to watch a movie about chocolate, discover how Butlers Chocolates Easter Eggs are made and learn all about the Butlers top secret history of chocolate-making. Ooh.
And Butlers have made sure to add their own quintessential touch of magic to the Butlers Chocolate Experience tour from March 18th
– March 26th
when the Easter Bunny will be on hand to meet and greet visitors and accompany them on a fun-filled Easter Egg hunt, which takes place after each tour! (Book HERE
Kids will also get to visit the Experience Room to see the techniques of chocolate creation up close AND use their newfound knowledge to create and decorate their own Easter Egg to take home.
Sounds like the perfect Easter day out right?
And after the tour you can treat the kids to one of Butlers’ famous Hot Chocolates (drool) and pick up some gorgeous limited edition Butlers Easter goodies.
