My husband and I and our three young kids spent a very enjoyable morning in MuckRoss Farms. The staff are friendly. The cottages are nicely spaced out and there's a bouncy castle and playground along the way to keep smaller kids entertained. New born piglets, foals and puppies are another attraction. The bus service is excellent for when little legs... More

Horse riding carts can bring you there but I would recommend you to walk because the Walk isn't very far and there are some great views. At the end of the day you can milk the cows.

Visited today with husband and two children under 6. Had a fantastic day, staff were lovely beginning with the shop where we purchased the tickets, the ladies in the houses, they all took the time for a chat and a bit of history. Very well laid out. Beautiful scenery along the way. Will definitely return. Thank you.

Three traditional farm houses, from small farmer to cattle farmer. In all houses volunteers in clothes worn in those time periods. Freshly baked bread from the griddle with selfmade butter from the larder, a lot of history. In the school house you might meet the priest who starts singing for you.

We were 3 generations going round the farms - 65+, 30+ and 2 & 4. There is something there for everyone - see how the people of the land used to live before electricity supply and modern conveniences, see farm animals (including young), bouncy castle and playground for the children too, ride the horse drawn cart, catch the bus if...

At first I thought it was a bit of a rip off paying nearly €10 into a farm. However, it takes a good few hours to walk around and it is not just a farm. It's a whole village. They have all the old houses that use to run the farms, you get an insight of how they use to... More

We stopped here on a whim while ini the area. It was a really good experience for the whole family. Don't be lazy though and take the bus...actually walk it...it will give you a good walk as well as immerse you more in the area. Our kids especially loved the baby animals. They got to even hold a puppy and... More

Quills's Farmhouse presents a great representation of farm life from the early 1900's. We ate in the small dinning room and had a cozy dinner. We were entertained by 2 lovely ladies with a squeeze box and guitar, singing Irish melodies. I loved their chatter and stories. We joined the rest of our group in the large dinning room for...
