“Great Family Day Out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

A little hard to find but fantastic from start to finish. Lovely food in the coffee shop, pitch and putt course, play areas, loads of fun in the maze, feeding and petting times, boat rides and barrel train ride. My four year old had an absolute blast. Great day out for kids of all ages and enjoyable for adults too

“Kids loved it!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Yes it is a bit out of the way and you think you will never find it but when you do it is so well worth it. The kids particularly loved petting and feeding the animals and discovered that they connect with them and not be afraid. The staff were great and very considerate of the kids. There is loads for the kids to do and the adults aren't forgotten either with go-karts and crazy golf. Lots of things to climb and swing from!! Also a lot of the old artefacts they have are amazing. Oh... and they have a really fantastic maze for kids and adults. Really enjoyed our day here and would highly recommend it.

“The highlight for the kids!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

When we eventually found this place it was great, the signs are few and far between and whilst all pointing the right direction only the nearest has a distance on it. That said it was a lovely experience, the animal petting times were great, the staff are friendly and the playgrounds are excellent, there is a good variety of animals and the cafe was good if a little expensive- the only problem was getting the children out of the place!

“Fantastic day out!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

I visited the farm with a friend and my 2 year old nephew.
It was a great day out enjoyed by all. My nephew had a ball and the staff were fantastic, they made the experience more than we could have expected. After a walk around the farm exploring and petting animals, my nephew wen on the quad ride for kids and then got to help feeding animals and milking a goat. I have never seen him get so involved in anything. The staff were very encouraging and friendly. They couldn't do enough for us!

I would recommend this to anyone with children for a great day out - Definitely worth the money!

“A must see in December”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

I cannot comment on the farm as we did not go on the farm tour but just had to share our experience of Santa.

We brought our 2 small children to Santa at Leahys in December 2012. It was truly a magical experience for both the adults and the children.
The staff went above and beyond to ensure we all enjoyed it. Every single one of them throughout the elf tour was exceptionally friendly, enthusiastic and made it so much fun for everyone.
I will never forget the attention to detail, it really was the best Christmas experience we have ever had. We were told stories along the way and met the elves, Mrs Clause etc. It really made the whole journey so exciting.
When we got to Santa he was a gentleman and so understanding and kind to my toddler who had suddenly become upset. The gifts' were lovely and both children were delighted.

We will definitely return this year ( in fact i think i will make it our family tradition) and I would recommend it 100% to all.


Thank you!!!

Hello,
Thank you for your very kind review of our Santa's Village experience in December, we open our doors on the 1st of December every year with Santa's Village. It is a magical guided experience where kids and adults alike truly are amazed and excited with the experience. The kids get really involved in the tour and we see nothing but smiling faces coming back after visiting Santa. We can't wait to do it all again this year, and we hope to see you there.
Kind Regards... Ho Ho Ho....
