I had visited Airfield a few years ago before it closed but this is my first time back since it reopened and it's much improved. We got there early and were able to straight to the Farmyard to see the cows being milked. All of the kids (and adults) there were mesmerised by this and the kids definitely liked learning... More

Had family lunch Sunday last - massive table - could easily accommodate 20 - new building nice/bright/modern, but a bit loud/clangy with all the hard surfaces/open kitchen. Food mainly fine, salmon/chicken/lamb all grand, although the special, roast pork, was a bit tough. Got the Overend salad, which was nice (with a bit of healthy kale, I think), but would've thought... More

Excellent amenity to have so close to the city ! Especially as it welcomes Children to all the area and grounds. Rational Vinduer quality beamwork and other Nordic interior beams) which gives superb light, and brightness-to match the equal style of Waiter and waitress serving. where it falls down is in its physical interior Accustics, Too darn noisey to enjoy...

We are a group of architecture students, and visited Airfield to study the building and its surroundings. Overall we all had a great time. The guided tour from Irene was by far the most informative part as she knew everything we needed to know and she was so helpful and friendly. It was really a great experience, and I would... More

This place is on the door step of Dundrum Shopping Centre. We had been there several times during the summer for coffee with my wife's elderly parents. They love it. Her father brought seven of us there on Saturday evening for his 86th birthday. The menu was limited to the food available from the garden with the exception of a... More

This working farm open to the public is a real gem. Our tour from the house at 11h30 was so interesting and our guide so knowledgeable about this family adding all the titbits of information that make family stories more interesting. The sisters who owned and developed the farm are national treasures. They lived well but they certainly gave back... More

We visited Airfield house on Wed. 10.9.2014 We each paid 8 euros adm senior rate. The location is great and easy to get to by Luas. We found the tour guide wonderful, he seemed to love his job. However we found the restaurant very disappointing and expensive. Two of the group had a starter meal only and enjoyed it. However... More

I also took the guided tour of the place and learned how to milk a cow! Avery enjoyable place to visit and especially if you have little ones. There is also... More

We had a great time running around the new gardens, especially the maze, which my son traveled repeatedly. The gardeners are creating a set of espaliered apple trees to define the maze, and took the time to explain to me what they were doing with branches, the how and the why (I'm hoping to espalier a few trees at home,...
