We stopped here for dinner as a part of a tour of Ireland and it was honestly one of the most interesting and fun nights. We got a tour of some parts of the farm (it was raining and dark), but inside the main house was very interesting. We leant about things like when the area finally got electricity and... More

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
