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

A great stop on a tour of west Kerry. This family farm is very welcoming. It has many interesting animals and the most amazing scenery. Not to be missed if traveling with young kids.

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

The owners are genuine and down to earth. Yes the place isn't the Taj Mahal, but who would it expect it to be when caring for some many animals. Is a cross between Doc Dolittle, the DC Zoo and a typical country farm - all...More
