The goat farm is situated at the top of a step hill, apparently if you go the other way...the long way around you don't have to climb the hill, they told me this afterwards ( my ex-friends :p you know who you are). The views are breathtaking and Ed himself, the owner, is a wonder of nature, he doesn't need... More

The owner was warm and welcoming and the ice cream was to die for! The baby goats were adorable but the milking process was very rustic - it is charming to see this is still doen this way!

My husband and I worked at Cliere Goats for a summer through the WWOOF program. Not only is Cape Clear (Cleire) on of the most beautiful places on earth but when you make it to the top of it's toughest hill you get rewarded with ice cream! You can make friends with the goats or the farmer Ed.

The herders passion, knowledge and love for the... More

We were met by Vera who showed us round and shared her stories like naughty Alfie who likes to butt and play and cute nigella the baby goat who likes lots of... More

After a walk up the VERY steep hill we were rewarded by playing with the goats on the goat farm surrounded by breathtakingly beautiful scenery. The goats are extremely friendly and we had a lovely time with them. We bought the goat ice cream which we all enjoyed even more having played with the goats that had produced the milk... More
