The Donkey Sanctuary has provided care & housing for hundreds of donkeys who have been abandoned or ill-treated. Visiting the farm is a great experience for solo travellers, couples, families...anyone really. Kids will love seeing the donkeys up close, especially any new foals. The donkeys are friendly and loveable, and most enjoy a good ear rub! :) Finding the sanctuary... More

I've been here 4 times now and just love to walk round and have the hands on experience with the donkeys. The staff are really friendly and always around to answer questions. You can make more of a day of it if you take a picnic, though you can get hot drinks from the shop. Don't forget it's a charity... More

This animal sanctuary is free for all to visit. The work to protect and rehabilitate rescued donkeys is conducted by committed animal lovers. Lovely walk around areas were donkeys kept, can stroke them and have a picnic in the outdoor picnic area or enter the shop. Children love meeting donkeys and if in area well worth visit.

Went today to adopt a donkey for my Mams birthday. It was raining so we decided not to walk around but the donkeys were heading into the sheds anyway. We adopted Róisín and the girl on reception brought us out to her and got her to come over so we could get a pic. She was really friendly and helpful... More
