Engaging tour that reflects what it was like to live in rural Ireland just 50 years or earlier ago. The staff do an excellent job on presenting the context and perspective of the time period and people they represent. Our family enjoyed the experience and we would recommend it to others.

A fun place to visit for those born and bred in big cities with no idea about rural life. Spread out a fair bit, a nice place to spend with children.

We recently spent 2-weeks in Ireland. Of all the "Folk Park" type attractions this was the best. It was the most authentic and pleasing to visit. It is definitely worth spending an hour or two visiting the site.

Interesting farm life living history exhibit that shows life in Ireland through mid 20th century before electricity arrived to farms. Very nice views of Killarney valley and mountains while walking the farm path. That was a nice bonus! Lots of animals about for kids and adults alike. Nice commentary by people working the farms. Also has a children's playground on... More

Nice experience, in the netherlands we have similar things, but these are always packed on a m2. This is real size, so with real fields. I was early in the morning, so little activities displayed. Maybe later in the day more activity or only on certain day's. Better to inform in advance.

This is a great outing. Staff is knowledgeable and welcoming. A very interesting look at farming in the 19th century and earlier. Lots of farm animals and a petting area with young animals born on the farm. Walking is very manageable and there is an ice cream cart and bouncy castle for the wee ones (and a playground on the...

It was a beautiful afternoon for a walk around farm. The Interpreters situated around the farm were knowledgeable and eager to share details of the old days including making how they made the bread and butter. A member in our group used a walker and wasn't able to navigate some of the paths. There is a bus available to take... More

We went to Quill's farmhouse for an evening of food and entertainment. This was a lot of fun! First, there was a tour of the farm and homestead, including a demonstration of butter churning, a look at the antique machinery and a visit with some animals. Then we were treated to a delicious old-style meal, with home-made breads, wine, irish... More
