Such a nice place to visit. I go here often just to support it. They do wonderful work to mind those donkeys who had been neglected. The sanctuary is always thinking of different events to do which is great for kids. Easter egg hunts, santa visit and Christmas fair open house teddy bear picnic

Very educational from the get go. You will learn a lot about donkeys and how sanctuaries like this one go a long way in protecting them from animal cruelty. Great experience for children, students an adults alike. Obviously not a rollercoaster ride but not everything has to be a 100 mile/hour trip to worthwhile. People are very friendly and dedicate...

I love the Donkey Sanctuary. It's a great place to take kids. I love how the donkeys are all rescued, all given the best of care, and are in great conditions, and that they don't breed them or anything. I wish there were more sanctuaries around to visit. It's great to teach kids about looking after animals. I've also done... More

What a fantastic attraction, so peaceful, donkey's are the most fantastic animals and these ones in Liscarroll are the friendliest that I have come across. All looking for more attention than the next! The walks around the sanctuary are just fantastic!

This place is a piece of paradise for these fantastic donkeys. I cannot wait to go back and adopt one. They are so well cared for and friendly. One of them kept braying at me and I rubbed her loads and when I stopped she was back braying again. Was hard to walk away then! There was babies there also... More

I love their temperament, these donkeys act like they are on holiday. They’re so funny, friendly and sweet, they love to have you scratch their ears and kiss their noses. They are well kept and the area is clean and a true pleasure, be sure to buy something from the gift shop as they don't charge to visit but these... More
