Recently visited here with my 9 &4 yr old. They had a great time. They have a fantastic museum, a playground, maze, diggers and of course the animals. The staff were very friendly and were great at feeding times getting the children involved. A big bonus if you get the weather but there is plenty of shelter.

Really loved Leahy's farm. Was not expecting the amount of activities and the time and effort that had clearly been put into planning and building up this farm over the years. Some really ingenious activities and unexpected surprises and delights around every corner. Would highly recommend to young families - you could easily spend an entire day here and enjoy... More

Leahy's Open Farm is a must to visit at least once a year, it is a great day out for all the family. There has been serious investment in the last year, especially now with its own Construction Zone and Digger Park, 4 fine JCB mini diggers and this year only €2 a go, all the Outdoor Go Karts are...

Previous people have said it all, this place blows Fota and it's rip off pricing and even Dublin zoo ( and I go there twice a year) outta the water. My wife, 2 boys, baby girl and myself had a blast, the place is huge so many 'activities' around let alone the farm part. Humphrey is cool! A couple of... More

Hello, thank you for your review of our farm, thanks also for the comparison to Fota and even Dublin zoo. We will try and stock more fun animals from our farm in our gift shop, you are right. Those old desks in the museum, I'm afraid we all feel a little bit older when we see those in comparison to... More

Just back from Leahy's farm and what a day. The staff, the food, the whole experience is excellent. We paid on the way in and that was that not like other places where you have to pay for every little thing you do. It has to be one of the nicest and probably the only place I have been to... More

When we arrived a really lovely lady kindly went through the map with us, pointed out all the main aspects of the farm and explained petting and feeding times.She was super with the kids and gave them some food to feed the animals....
