Where else can you feed a baby lamb and then walk into Irish mountside paradise?

The owners are genuine and down to earth. Yes the place isn't the Taj Mahal, but who would it expect it to be when caring for some many animals. Is a cross between Doc Dolittle... read more

This was just a complete let-down to our family group. It was dirty, untidy with rotting seats beside a "playground" overgrown with grass and rusty toys which continued with broken toys in adjoining "playroom" - a dilapidated former outhouse! No effort whatsoever to make this an attractive experience for a family day out. There were no facilities whatsoever - no... More

The owners are genuine and down to earth. Yes the place isn't the Taj Mahal, but who would it expect it to be when caring for some many animals. Is a cross between Doc Dolittle, the DC Zoo and a typical country farm - all very quaint and absolutely worth every small 7 euro cost. The owners' on both our... 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
