Decided to visit Leahy's Open Farm as we were staying in Youghal and it was listed in the information pack of the accommodation we were staying in. Having visited 'open farms' before, we thought we knew what to expect and that if nothing else it would pass a couple of hours on a dull day weather-wise! We (myself, husband, 8yr... More

Farmer Matt was lovely making sure that everyone was included during the feeding/petting time which as my lo can be shy in big groups was brilliant. She rubbed rabbits, held mice and even had a snake... More

The petting zone was fab and my step daughter will never forget having a mouse on her head :) Mr.Leahy snr was fantastic spent ages with the... More

Great day out either looking at the array of animals or just all the other amusements on offer to entertain the whole family. The big black plastic tube slide is great fun for all ages.

A trip to the farm where the old and the new are blended very well. We were there for about 4 hours, and could easily have spent another few hours trying to do everything. This is not a theme park, it is still something of a working farm. It also includes a museum of sorts with collections of farm machinery,... More
