Visited Leahys Farm last Sunday afternoon and had a great time. The kids loved feeding the monkeys and holding the snake. The maze was good fun. Definitely worth a visit.

Having paid €36 euro to get in to the farm we were left a bit disappointed with what they had on offer. Pros: Interesting museum with lots of scenes from the past (schoolhouse, shop, pub etc.) Decent number of animals and the children really enjoyed the petting times. Cons: Food service, our 4 dishes arrived over the course of 10... More

I knew something was amiss when I arrived at the ticket desk and enquired as to what time the disco was on. The girl behind the desk said there was no disco. I said it was mentioned on the website and she asked... More
