Hi Sharon, apologies you can't visit us at the moment. The Donkey Sanctuary Ireland Open Farm is temporarily closed to the public. We know you will understand that we are prioritising the care of our donkeys whilst working with a limited workforce due to child care commitments and rotas. By allowing visitors into the Open Farm, we would put our staff at risk, therefore the donkeys would be at risk too as if staff become sick, our ability to care for our donkeys is reduced. Thank you for your kind support at this time and we look forward to seeing you later in the year. We will keep you up to date with any changes on this page.

Wonderful place to see the Donkos. Totally different experience summer and winter. Both are great. Later in the evening is nice to see the running of the park, lots of activities, see how the park is maintained. Would recommend for kids and adults.

Wonderful, somewhat eccentric day out! Donkeys utterly adorable and obviously very contented and well looked after in a very caring environmet. Would particularly recommend the Donkey Sanctuary as a day out with young children. Worth supporting: if you are at all interested in animal welfare

It was lovely to see the donkeys but the trail was closed (yet no details on the website or FB page to warn us). Little shop is nice.

Thank you for your feedback. Every donkey taken into the Sanctuary is guaranteed a life of loving care. For many, it is the first time in their lives that they have felt loving hands and heard quiet voices. Great care is given to ensuring that each donkey has individual attention. As a charity, we are grateful to our supporters and visitors who give so generously to help us continue what we do.
