Totally not worth the experience unless you want to take a nice walk. Hop on bus is useless as we only saw one the entire walk around the farm.

Muckross traditional farms are brilliant. We have been here twice now and would not hesitate to visit again. You can clearly see all the workers enjoy their job they are so helpful with any questions etc. the farms themselves really bring you back in time they are so well laid out. The new addition of the schoolhouse is also excellent... More

Very good overview of the different lifestyles on farms in 19th and early 20th century Ireland. Lots of animals and information. Don't miss the school house - very typical. Samples of bread baked in the open hearth with butter churned on the premises daily

We waked the path, climbed aboard the horse cart and found the history behind the farms very interesting. The bread being baked and served was delicious. Give yourself 2 hours.

This is an expensive over contrived attraction. The condition of the animals is awful. It is a very long walk to period farms. Once we paid our admission 7.50 euro we were told we wouldn't have enough time to see everything unless we rode the bus. The bus took us to the first farm house where there was a "lady... More

This is a village of houses, school, farm, etc. Some of them are built to look like they are old, some really are old. I think the highlight of this area for us was the farm animals in the back. They had baby cows, goats, a 5-day old donkey, puppies, etc. in the back. It is an uphill trek unless... More

The Farms are co-located with Muckross House at Killarney National Park, but require a separate admission fee and are not included on the Irish Heritage Card (although if I remember correctly, Heritage Card holders received a small discount). I wasn't sure whether I would find a visit to be worthwhile because some of the comments I had read focused on... More

We bought the joint admission to here and the Muckross Estate Tour. There are 3-4 farms to visit total with women at each farm house. The women are supposed to tell you the story of the house, etc. Two were great, one did not speak and one was not there. We could have easily spent 2-3 hours looking around, but... More
