7 euro might have been stretch...but after feeding a young baby lamb, I don't think I can eat lamb for awhile. Puppies, ducks, sheep, goats, pigs, a peacock, emus, cows... read more

This cute little farm is a must see along dingles amazing sleigh head drive. Firstly the location is breath taking, with a view of the 3 sisters and the Atlantic. The farm is nestled at the base of mount Brandon, Ireland's second tallest mountain. The business is run by the family and has such a relaxed homely feel. The whole... More

This is not worth the money, don't go... Some of the areas had no animals at all In them.. And it is very run down and I have seen better places.. Keep you money for something more worth while..

7 euro might have been stretch...but after feeding a young baby lamb, I don't think I can eat lamb for awhile. Puppies, ducks, sheep, goats, pigs, a peacock, emus, cows, chickens and a beautiful, secluded, and lovely creek in the way back...I don't know...my wife and I are silly peple and we were quite entertained overall.

As a previous reviewer has pointed out you pay 7 euros for absolutely nothing. A few badly kept animals in pens then a walk around fields. The scenery is amazing but you can walk anywhere in the area to get the view. The fences are built on mounds so you can't actually see into the fields unless you are over... More

This was a pleasant day trip out from Dingle to Scanlon's Pet Farm. Forget zoos and captivity, this is where life on the farm is natural and easy. We were kept amused by the running little piggies through the yard - they were the cutest and so playful! Then there was the big sows - they looked grumpy! The hens,... More

What a picturesque setting, the views are amazing. The proprieters couldn't have been more helpful. There was a broad range of animals all in good condition with plenty of space. I remember visiting with my children last time we were here and they loved the hands on approach, being able to handle the animals and the helpful tips and information... More

Don't bother heading out there. It's 7 euro per adult, and it's not even guided. There is little or no health and safety taken into account, fences are falling apart, we saw one dead rat and one dead bird. The 'tour' could be walked in about 60 seconds. And to top it all off, there's nothing else around it, so... More
