This was a great attraction as part of our tour. The folks gave some great exhibitions and tour of the farm. On the side they had two beautiful Wolfhounds and Clydesdale horses. The entertainment and meal was very nice. The whole experiences was great and a must!

Day#59 with my #100happydays journey brought me to Muckross Traditional Farms after work. Such an up-lifting happydays journey where I even met someone working there who knew my Dad from 'The Dances' back in the day & knew Dad's own mom Maureen! Lovely experience listening to some stories. Everything about this Traditional Farm just reminded me so much of Dads'... More

We stayed in Tralee and travelled to Kilarney on the way home. We decided to stop here with our 2 young kids. What a treat it was, from the home made bread in one of the old cottages to the petting farm it self. A lot of little treats along the way and great for our children to see the... More

This is a lovely add-on to the visit of the killarney national park, where there's days of walking, boating, cycling etc to do. I had my 6yr old grandson with me and children always seem to be fascinated with how we used to live. The farm is gorgeous, very authentic, spacious and set in very prettty surroundings. There was bread... More

We were greeted by our host and were given a brief tour of the farm...it was like stepping back in time to grandma and grandpa's place! The farm was set up to remind you... More

Muckross Farm was well worth the visit. Our bus tour included this as an evening event. A great overview of farm life in the past century. The guide/host made us feel very welcome right from when he stepped on the bus to greet us. We stepped through the gates and saw a donkey with her foal that was 2 days... More
