You cant miss the donkey sanctuary right next to the road just before you enter McGregor. Enjoy a nice lunch with a cold craft beer or wine while you consider to adopt a donkey. They need our support.

What an awesome experience! I never knew I knew so little about these wonderful creatures and I am so pleased that we made the effort to drive to McGregor to visit. Our wonderful guide, Beatrice, was extremely knowledgable and shows incredible compassion for these beautiful beasts. There is a small restaurant, and we ate a delicious lunch. There is also a curio shop (we bought a donkey!) and a 2nd hand book shop (we bought loads of books!). My 6 year old also had an amazing time, and we will certainly go back soon. I found the enire experience very relaxing and reasonably priced.

Took our little one to see the donkeys and spent a very enjoyable time there. Our guide obviously knows all the donkeys well and you can tell he loves being around them. He introduced us to almost all of them and told each one's story. Lots of interesting donkey facts. Relaxed with a cool drink in the cafe afterwards and bought some books. Definitely worth a visit.

What a nice experience. I had lunch there which was tasty and served by very friendly and helpful staff plus not expensive at all. Not only was the cheesecake beautiful to look at it tasted amazing. Afterward, I was the only one there but Leonard the guide still took me out to the field to go meet the donkeys and I learned quite a few interesting fact. Thank you.

A little wa out of McGregor is this donkey sanctuary. The donkeys were not our interest but we wanted to have a light lunch and had heard good reports . We were not disappointed in our two platters and cheese cake. The service was friendly and helpful.
