Of all the places we visited in Wexford this was one of the best. It was great value for money. Lots to see and the staff were very friendly. The children loved it and wanted to go back.

I brought my little boy to visit this open farm along with his grandad. He loved to walk around the place and meet the animals. There were plenty of interesting birds, pigs, goats and other animals to keep him amused for about an hour. Most...More
