We visited the farm where we learned about its operation, some some old farm vehicles, and saw the Clydesdale horses. After the visit, we were shown how butter is made and were able to have a taste. This was followed by a delicious 3 course dinner. Th ladies who make the butter and bread also cooked the meal and served.... More

I took some visiting relations here recently and had a most enjoyable time. After entering you can wait for a bus or just enjoy the walk to the first house where you will be greeted by the Bean an Tí (The woman of the house) who looks after this house and bakes bread on the open fire which you can...

We really enjoyed our trip to muckross traditional farm. We spent about four hours walking around the farm and the kids (4 and 6) loved every minute of it, especially the stop at the blacksmith. They were fascinated. I also liked that the farm only had traditional farm animals that looked well cared for. It's a good idea to bring... More

Having visited the Muckross house and did a 3 hours walk around the lake, visiting the nearby waterfall we decided to take a look at the traditional farms. After showing our Muckross house farm ticket we could upgrade to a combined ticket for 6 euro per person. This was very kind. The proposed walking route is anti clockwise and begins... More

This was one of our favorite places. Goats, Chickens, pigs, cows, horses, sheep, lots of different farm animals to pet. Neat farms to explore and walk through. Blacksmith, and other crafts to visit as well. Schoolhouse was really cool too!

Lovely walk around the traditional farms and extremely interesting - great to see the old houses preserved and reminded me so much of my grandparents houses back in the day. Felt very nostalgic

We visited muckross farm mid August on a very hot day. Really enjoyed the tour but was annoyed to see the animals on display in very small quarters - little pups, sheep, calves etc. was most annoyed to see sow and little pigs lying on concrete in baking sun with a little dirty water and no cover from heat I...

A great place to visit to see oldy worldy Ireland lol, the cottages are built to show exactly what life was like in those days depending on your stature, and the ladies within them are very friendly whilst they chat to you they are making their bread which you can taste, there is plenty to do for all ages

We have visited the farms before but this year we took my partners son. The farms are interesting and a good look at life gone by. The Blacksmith was in residence and we stayed there for a while and watched him work...so interesting to see an old craft being done and explained and he kindly answered all our questions. We...
