Muckross Traditional Farms - Much Better than we first thought We made the trip to Muckross Traditional Farms for the day and were impressed. The farms are a fantastic display of the traditional times on the Irish farm. We especially enjoyed visiting with those working at the farms, very informative and educational. The Farms are definitely worth a visit, Enjoy!

Located within Killarney National Park are a series of Traditional Farms - each representing rural life in the west of Ireland in the 1920's and 30's - and each representing a different level of socio-economic status.

The traditional farms were very interesting to me and my husband. It gives you a very good feel and picture of what life was like. At each stop there will be a Lady of the House, to explain their daily chores, where everyone sleeps and how the farm runs. These ladies are a complete delight. This is a free walking... More

This walking excursion is a trip back in time where you get to see what it was like for people in Ireland in the 1st half of the 20th century.

what a great day out for all the family, the kids just love to explore all the nooks and cranny's of the houses here and love to try the home made bread and butter. So many animals to see too. Also there is a lovely picnic area here and also a nice little playground.

Poor signage telling you where to go even with a map, but what a neat place. Nice walk between sights. Good hostesses. Lovely views and plenty of animal life. Educational, nice walk and good experience.

We did the farm trip in Muckross park with the kids recently. They give you a map and you follow it walking around. The old farm house have no running water or televisions not a mind to say toilets! the kids found this hard to understand. The walk is quite long so if the kids are very young bring a... More
