It’s almost pumpkin-picking season.
And if you’re on the hunt for the best patch to hunt for your perfect Jack-o-lantern, one Cork spot just made a list of the top ten pumpkin patches in Ireland.
Recipe box delivery company, HelloFresh Ireland analysed regional online searches for pumpkin picking, and ranked patches based on followers, price of family admission, and Google ratings.
Kilkenny, Dublin and Wexford are home to the country’s best pumpkin patches, but The Farm in Grenagh, Cork made the list, coming in at number eight.
Family admission prices can be as much as €58.50 in some counties, however a handful of patches offer family entry for under €20. Mollie’s Farm in Offaly is the cheapest patch in the dataset, with admission at just €10.50 for two adults and one child.
In Grenagh, you can enjoy the grounds this Halloween for €38 for two adults and one child.
Top of the list this year was Nore Valley Park in Kilkenny, whose pumpkin patch scored highly across the board.
The site has over 36,000 followers on social media with an average family entry cost of €24 and a Google rating of 4.2. Tey also offer fun family events such as pumpkin carving, scare mazes, and treasure hunts.
