We had good times spending long days @Scanlon's farm. We got more than a glimpse on how rich the country in Ireland is by coming to the pet farm and helping out with some cool farm work! Thanks for the dinners and the possibilities and...More

This place is to be avoided at all costs. It’s the only way to ensure this excuse of a pet farm closes and hopefully the poor animals are removed and cared for by the ISPCA from here on. I have just reported this farm the...More

Never saw that kind of pet farm. There was a waste of time and money. I paid €11 ( €7 for an adult and €4 for a child) and I honestly don't know what I paid for. We saw few badly dirty pigs and few...More

This was just a complete let-down to our family group. It was dirty, untidy with rotting seats beside a "playground" overgrown with grass and rusty toys which continued with broken toys in adjoining "playroom" - a dilapidated former outhouse! No effort whatsoever to make this...More
