    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.

    We had a lovely family day out in fernhill garden centre yesterday, the staff were extremely helpful and gave great advise on our plants. There is a very happy atmosphere around the place with cheerful music and friendly staff.The kids loved the play area as we enjoyed a coffee in the restaurant. Best of luck with the opening of the new gift shop, I can’t wait to visit again!

    Easy, flat looped walk. Good starting point is at the quays by the castle. The trail runs mostly along the Shannon but loops around inland by a small canal.

    Can’t praise this place highly enough. As a family with zero experience of horse riding we were nervous. 2 adults with 10 & 6 yr olds . Beautiful treck with great scenery but the staff are the real highlight. So attentive and caring towards the horses , chatted to our kids all the way round . So glad we did this . Any family looking for something to do together will not be disappointed.
