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

Allow enough time for this marvellous experience - children will be captivated by the animals and the grounds were spectacular. On the day I visited, there were a couple of school groups of young children visiting and I could tell they were enjoying their visit. The shop was also excellent

A 2km track around the farm can be walked or you can hop on hop off the bus that is continually doing... More

Myself, wife and teenage son visited here on a recent trip to killarney. This was our third visit but it was a good few years from our last one and the place has got even better. Good value €17 for the three of us. A great look at how life was in the old days and how people baked and... More

When we were driving up the avenue to the petfarm there were signs the whole way up saying "dogs must be kept on lead".. so we continued up to the shop to pay in to the farm.. put our small terrier dog on the lead as specified. Our family of six went in, with our little dog and paid! It... More
