We went here for the santa wonderland last Saturday and had a brilliant time. The price of ticket (19e) included Santa visit, present, photo and visit to the farm. I thought this very good value. I would strongly recommend the visit to Santa here. The staff went to a lot of trouble and made each child and their parents very... More

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

The radio ad for their Halloween "Spooktakular Family Fun" mentioned a Witches Disco as did their website. 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

Visited Leahys farm today and wow what fun we had, might I add this was a return visit and and yet again superseded my expectations and more. This place by far is the best open farm in Ireland. Not only did we have the delightful experience of seeing and petting all the beautiful animals which there is a great array... More

Today I went to Leahy's open Farm with my family including my husband and young daughter and I feel as though we were robbed of our money. The whole place simply has a dodgey atmosphere and looks as though it has been cheaply set up. The animals seemed poorly looked after as the Camel was foaming at the mouth and... More

We visited Leahy’s farm with our two boys (aged 3 & 5) and we all loved it. We have been to a few open farms before, but this place is head and shoulders above the rest. I was a bit taken aback at the 9 euro entrance fee per person (and per child) but it’s worth every cent. We brought... More
