The people working in the farms were really welcoming and explained things about the houses and showed you different things of how this and that was done in the past. It was a pretty long walk around to all the farms, but there was a bus going around the farms all the time so you could go in it if... More

Went here with wife, Sister in Law and our three year old. He was 1000% captivated. It was good to see the olden ways being reenacted, and to get to talk to the participants. For me the highlight was the forge, the blacksmith was very chatty and very engaged/engaging

Walking around here is fabulous. You can talk to the women in the houses and the blacksmith - he was making an eagle keyring when we were there which we subsequently purchased. All of the people are very good to talk with and very interesting

A visit to the farmhouses is really recommended, for everyone! I must admit that I was reluctant in the beginning, but as I bough a combined ticket to the house and to the farms I saw that it only made 2 Euros difference for me when I bought a student ticket so I thought why not? Two others in my... More

What can be said that doesn't say "wonderful". The experience of the farm walk and amenities is just sublime. I live in killarney and this was our first time visiting the farm. The place is just spotless. Beautiful old mock buildings. A far superior set up to Bunratty folk park. One slight observation. Litter bins should be present along the... More

Visited here on a wet afternoon. was only €4 as we are students. The highlight for us was the shed full of baby animals. There was a school tour inside the shed also so there was a great buzz. Puppies, kittens and various other tiny animals which we were allowed to touch and hold. They also have a shuttle bus... More

Visited the farm with my three children and it was a great way to pass the day. My older boys loved all of the old farmhouses and couldn't believe people used to live in such basic ways!! It wasn't overly informative and there were very few animals, much less than we expected to see, but otherwise a very enjoyable afternoon.

This is a near-perfect living history presentation. A small townland from 1930s/40s Ireland is reconstructed, made up of different types of perfectly reconstructed houses and cottages, linked by country lanes, through which you are free to wander as you will. We visited in peak season (July) and the farms were full of activity - people working the fields and small... More
