“Great Produce”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2012

Brought a young nephew he loved seeing all the animals up close and the produce was very reasonably priced. Lots of local produce.

“Love this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2012

My family have been going to Willie's (the owner) for years even before all the additions to the farm. Love getting my fresh fruit and veg in the barn shop, especially when it's veg that he has grown on the farm himself. It doesn't get fresher than that!!
I also recently had lunch at the new restaurant which has now opened across from the barn "The Donkey Shed". All I can say is lovely food at reasonable prices. When my kids started getting restless at the table we took them for a walk to the animal farm where they were very excited to see all the different farm animals. A great place to bring the kids for a while, have a ncie lunch and get your fruit and veg on the way out!

“We are fans”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2012

Our family are regulars in this restaurant, they serve very simple rustic meals but oh so tasty! The sandwiches are always nicely grilled, meat and sausages are great, so is their fish and chips, chicken, slow roast beef and pork. Overall a great experience, the only problem is to get place at lunchtime on Saturdays and Sundays as they are packed. Fantastic for kids, with the kids menu very good and containing more options than the usual goujons and chips, very good. And the ice-cream is fantastic, our daughter is a fan! The staff is very nice and friendly.
Another plus is the chance to buy fresh veggies and fruit while there and also see and feed the farm animals, we always get plenty of carrots to feed the friendly donkeys and not so friendly but very hungry pigs.

“Some of the best food in Ashbourne / Ratoath area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2012

Big surprise to find such good food in a very ordinary looking restaurant. I've tried 3 different mains but can strongly recommend their Mexican Burger - it was the best burger I've have ever had. Staff really friendly. Kids can runaround outside with the farm animals between courses (or while you enjoy a glass of wine!).

“Excellent place to eat and relax with the family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2012

Hi, I was there recently for lunch at the Donkey Shed, it was excellent, a large portion and very tasty (sole with champ) the others who also dined with us also had lovely meals and everyone was very pleased. The price was good and we liked the atmosphere, also children can have some fun looking at the animals as well.
