    great experience bday party
    I organized my daughter's 8th birthday on Saturday and I couldn't be happier with the service! Liam was an amazing host and a true gentleman ❤️. He took great care of all the children and everyone enjoyed the party (golf, the train ride over the farm, the lunch and the big yummy chocolate cake!). It was the best experience for us! I truly recommend the farm both for a party and a day out, it worth the visit!
    Thanks so much Aliona, we are delighted you were so happy with your daughters party, we hope to see you all again soon.

    Birthday party
    We had our sons 5th birthday party here in May. An absolutely great experience from start to finish. Liam the party coordinator took all the stress out of it for me and made it great craic for the kids and the adults too. A few people who came late thought he was my uncle cause he was such a big part of the day and we were all having such a laugh together! 😂 He’s worth his weight in gold. Thanks again Liam.
    Thanks so much for the lovely review, Liam is definitely worth his weight in gold and goes above and beyond to ensure everyone has a great day out. We hope tosee you again soon.

    Birthday party
    We celebrated my son’s 6th birthday at Kildare farm. It was so well organised from start to finish. Liam was the party coordinator and took great care of us. He made my son feel so special throughout and was great at entertaining the kids and the adults! Crazy golf, train ride, food, cake and then walk around to feed the animals. Liam even organised a little cake for myself as it was also my birthday which was a really nice personal touch. Highly recommend for anyone looking for something a bit different to the usual play centre parties.
    Thanks so much Marion, lovely to hear you all had a great time, Liam is a great host and loves to make everyone feel special, we hope to see you again soon and thanks for the review.

    What a fantastic day we had today at kildare farm foods for Poppy's and Hazel's 8th and 7th birthday party. Liam, a gentleman, who kept us all in line and guided us all around the crazy golf, the train ride and food, drinks and birthday cake, to then send us all on our merry way to see and feed the animals, much to all the parents sighs of, I don't want to feed the animals, it's raining. But everyone loved it and had a great time, Kids and adults. 🎉🎉☔☔🐮🐷🐴🐫🐓🦆🚂🎊🎊🎂🎂
    Thanks so much for the lovely reveiw, Liam is a star, we hope to see you again soon

    Crazy Golf
    A large group of us visited Kildare Farm Foods yesterday afternoon to play some crazy golf. We had a great experience from start to finish and will most definitely visit again as we had such a lovely time. We were made feel so welcome by Liam who was so very kind and just went above and beyond for us and is an absolute asset to your team - a true gentleman if ever there was one! Thank you so much on behalf of our whole group - we look forward to calling out again sometime soon.
    We look forward to welcoming you again soon, thanks for the lovely words, Liam will be delighted.

    Fantastic fun
    Well done to Liam and the gang at Kildare Farm foods . We enjoyed the Halloween experience so much. The place was amazing and the food served was really great. The shop is beautifully presented and all the staff went out of their way to make sure everyone was looked after. The pumpkin patch was so much fun and the animals all looked so well looked after. Thanks Liam from Alison and friends . ❤️
    Thanks so much Alison for such a lovely review, we are delighted you all enjoyed and we hope to see you soon.

    Wonderful!
    FABULOUS! We visited Kildare Farm foods for the Christmas experience and to visit Santa. We had a wonderful time from start to finish. Liam the train driver was a lovely man, helpful, chatty and friendly. Our youngest child who is only 18 months loved him. The North Pole simulator was brilliant. Santa was kind and chatty and gave lots of time to the children. We enjoyed every minute of our trip and will hopefully get the opportunity to return again. Enjoy your next holiday in Killarney Liam. Happy Christmas from A Kerry Family
    Thanks so much Maire, we're really enjoying the Christmas experience too, we hope to see you all again soon.

    Christmas experience.
    Took my grandchildren to the Christmas experience. Absolutely amazing. The train ride and Liam the driver was so nice. Santa was very busy but had time for all the kids. The highlight for my grandchildren was the roller coaster. It was magical. Crazy golf⛳ and I could go on. Highly recommend
    Thanks Ursula, we are having a ball here with Santa and all the visitors we have this year, we hope to see you again soon.

Just back from our annual tour to Kildare Farm Foods and I couldn’t recommend it enough. We were immediately greeted by Nathan on the train! Nathan showed us the animals, set us up for crazy golf and gave us a tour around the farm on the train. Both the children and staff had a lovely hot lunch with food from the fab cafe. He surprised one of the children with a cake and candle for her birthday. Personal touches like this and the family friendly ran element are the reasons we return. Off all the years we have attended this had to be my favourite. Nathan was a big hit with adults and children. His kind and caring manner didn’t go unnoticed. The day was so well organised , we couldn’t have asked for more. Big thank you from Willie, Emma and all the staff and children from Exchange House Ireland.

We recently celebrated my son's birthday at Kildare Farm Foods, and it was an unforgettable experience! Liam, our host, was absolutely amazing and made my son feel incredibly special throughout the entire event. His attentiveness and enthusiasm were remarkable.

The venue itself was perfect for a birthday party, with plenty of activities to keep the children entertained. From the animal farm to the play areas, every aspect of Kildare Farm Foods contributed to a fantastic day.

I highly recommend Kildare Farm Foods for anyone looking to host a memorable party. Thank you, Liam, for making my son's birthday so special!

We visited Kildare Farm today (Wednesday 19th June) for our Senior Infant School Tour.

Our day was a huge success from start to finish! We couldn’t be happier!

We were met at the bus by Liam, Jack and Corey ready to bring us on our train journey, then we stopped for a quick bite and teas and coffees for the teachers (which was greatly appreciated) from there, we split into our two classes, one set off for mini golf and one set off with their animal feed to feed the farm animals. We swapped over afterwards. Then it was back for another train ride around the farm and back for a gorgeous lunch of chips sausages and goujons. The children were absolutely thrilled - as were us teachers!

A huge thank you to Liam, Jack and Corey for making our school tour unforgettable. They couldn’t have done enough to make our day so enjoyable! They were so kind, friendly and brilliant with the children! We’ll definitely be back!

Many thanks,
Scoil Mhuire, Leixlip
