“Brilliant visit to Santa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

Kids were so excited visiting Santa here. The whole place was decorated lovely. They had fake snow which was great. Santa was great and queues wasn't bad. I would recommend going there when dark cause all lights look lovely. Really worth a visit. Good effort from all staff.

“Animal Lovers Paradise!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

We received a lovely warm welcome at reception and were given little bags of oats and barley for feeding the animals - from that point we knew we were in for a treat!! We spent ages talking to Rio the macaw parrot. He was hilarious. The goats, donkey and llamas ate nicely but the cheeky emu pecked at my husbands hand haha. Inside the shed was our favourite part - we fell in love with the 2 jack russell puppies. We could have cuddled them for hours!! Scruff the pot bellied pig was adorable and loved a good belly rub! We finished our trip off with a yummy hot chocolate and coffee with carrot cake and cookie. Awesome day out for all ages :)

“Ok but pricey”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Went on the last day of the Halloween opening for the first time and I was a bit disappointed. Firstly it was expensive- €24 for 2 adults and an under 2! The animals are in pens on either side of a walkway and in a barn at the end of the area- I had expected more animals and that it might take longer to get through them (and it probably would if you were with a 5 or 6 year old but our 2 year old was more interested in getting to the end!). The animals are friendly and I liked the fact you could feed them. The covered sand pit at the end was great fun with loads of barrows, buckets, diggers etc. The playground is fine but nothing special. Lots of room but I could imagine the swings, slides etc. could get really busy during busy times. I had really wanted to like this place but I won't be rushing back- it just isn't great value for money unfortunately :(

“Nice place for visit with young kids, a bit over priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

We visited this place in Oct 2013, during a wedding in Athlone. It as a positive experience for our family at 8 euros per person and child, it is over priced.

the concept is good, but still needs to be developed more. thinking about other pet farms in Ireland which we have visited the owners of glendeer should study Kia Ora Mini Farm in County Wexford.
