Poorly staffed in restaurant. (30 minute wait for food) Restaurant was cold, coffee was cold, dirty tables and floors in restaurant. Indoor play a disgrace: Cold, miserable and absolutely filthy dirty. 3 sets of tables and chairs in indoor play. Sat on a dirty sticky leather couch. Refurbishment?? I'd say it's worse than it was last year. Shop looks nice.... More

The only fault we had was the time frame for lunch and space was not big enough. As you know you cannot time lunch with children so we... More

Located just south of Cork city off the N27 Rumley's provides a great opportunity for kids to have hand-on interaction with farm animals as well as many other exhibits. Good play park.

For the animals some badly needed a bigger pen and cleanliness was a major problem but i let that slide till i got round to the milking parlour and it was disgraceful. The... More

Surprisingly the farm is huge and with kids you could easily spend several hours. we are from the city ourselves and love animals and this is our local attraction. we visit here around 4 times a year...

Came with my family and was unlike anything we have ever been to! A very open feel! You get a hands on experience! They do a quality job at Rumley's Open Farm and I applaud their commitment to these beautiful animals! Not to mention the amazing Newfie dogs that greet you Miley & Cyrus!
