I visited this recreation of Rural Killarney Farms in the 1930's and 1940's on a combined ticket with Muckross House there by saving me 3 euros and it was certainly well worth the visit. The buildings look totally original, such is the way that that they have been built you would not think that they were recreations. There are three... More

Be prepared for a couple of hours walk. (There is a shuttle bus available for those less able). Fascinating farm replicas (felt slightly 'short-changed' when we discovered they were modern!) introducing life in the 30s and 40s. Friendly welcome from staff.

This was done nicely, had three different farm type from single dwelling to large farmhouse. Each farm had a person in the house answering questions and offering samples of bread made in the fireplace stoves in the houses. You can watch them milk the cow (we missed it). The petting area wasn't quite what we thought, some puppies, pigs, calf... More

It was interesting to hear about life in Ireland 100 years ago by men and women in character and in period clothing. And we actually got to (attempt to) milk the cow! We were there during the last 90 minutes before they closed, however, and by the time we got to the stops further along the route, the employees had... More

The traditional farms were very interesting - the kids just love to explore all the nooks. 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.... More

We went here as part of the Royal Irish Tour trip. It was a bit rainy so it wasn't a great day to see much of the farm, but we saw the Clydesdales and Irish wolf hounds. The hosts were wonderful. We had a fantastic dinner in the farm house and Irish music from the daughter and her friend, who... More

It was okay. We did this right before they closed so maybe that is why it wasn't very interesting. Lots of farm animals and you get to explore by yourself. There are people dressed up as if they lived there handing out freshly baked bread with butter. It was interesting to see the different farm sized and the richer vs... More

I enjoyed seeing the authentic farms of the mid-20th century. But I was not or prepared for how long the walk would be either to get to the buildings or between buildings. It didn't help that it was raining a lot. The woman In the houses told their stories well.

If you like history this is a must see. You get to view a working farm and see the farmhouses and animals there. I found it so interesting.
