About
Animal interaction at it's best. See all the funny antics of our friendly animals, you will get to feed, pet and even hold some of them. Over 50 species of animals to see, an 1850s cottage, a nature walk and fairy trail, a large outdoor and indoor play area and a soft play toddler area, so there is something for eeryone. Lots to do throughout the year: Summer season runs from March to Sept (please check our website for exact dates), Easter Egg Hunts Easter Sat, Sun and Mon at 3pm, Halloween Spooktastic Event during the mid term break, and foe the month of December the farm is transfered into Ireland's Lapland.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Honestly, we weren't sure about stopping here. But, we are definitely glad we did. Our family had a blast! Our daughter did not protect her bag of feed well enough and the goat got a hold of it and ate the entire thing! Ha! The staff was so kind and gave her another bag for free. We could have stayed here much later than we did. The animals are awesome and the play area for the kids and adults are so much fun. We were really impressed by the Glendeer Pet Farm. The kids kept asking if we could go back. It is a lot of fun! Definitely stop by if you are in the Athlone area.

Stopped off at this place on a whim on the way back from Galway. Amazing place, great variety of animals, loads of things for the kids to do, they seem to have thought of everything. On top of all that the staff were all really friendly and helpful and the lunches are as cheap as chips!

Really enjoyed our visit to the farm... my 10 year old son laughed and smiled throughout. 3 bags of food given on way in to feed the animals, who are very friendly. Plenty of animals to feed and pet...goats, emu's, geese, donkey, various chick's, got to cuddle rabbits. Also monkeys, llamas, deer, wallabies and more. Plenty of shelter so no need to worry about rain...we had torrential showers. Lots of great play area's indoor and outdoor. Coffee shop. Highly recommend and would return. We spend 2.5hrs there but could have stayed all day.

This was our second visit to Glendeer pet farm. What a fantastic place. We stayed in athlone agin this year on our staycation and asked the kids what they wanted to do on they way home, they begged us to go back to Glendeer. It’s a fantastic farm, so well run, all about animal welfare. Feeding the animals is the bonus. This place is an absolute must ❤️ We love it and will definitely return ❤️

Great day out with our toddler. Very friendly staff on arrival and a bag of feed is provided.

The animals are spaced out very well and we spent just over an hour.

Very family friendly. Would definitely recommend.

It’s a nice day out, had a good time, but felt a bit for the animals though, some of the cages look so small and the animals look very unkept. Their area’s are very dirty, like unchanged for days. All in all worth a visit

We couldn’t recommend highly Glendeer enough. There was so much to do and see and the staff were brilliant with the kids. So many different animals to see, feed and cuddle. Dragon lizards, baby goats and the Emu were particular hits. The play parks were fantastic, our sons had an absolute blast.

An excellent pet farm with incredibly clean areas, including the animals, and a lot of space to enjoy the outside, have a picnic at one of the many picnic tables, and experience the best pet farm I have I think ever seen - and we have seen a lot! Perfect and extremely safe experience and will go there again!

An unexpected great find in Roscommon, so close to Athlone. They have a great range of animals, many of which you can get up close to. My daughter loved it. In the barn a very friendly member of staff chatted to her and showed her some baby chicks and guinea pigs. Very fun! Clean and well organised.
