Service Description

Welcome to a "Donkey Trail Through Time", our unique 3-hour guided tour of historical Irish farming practices, taking place on our donkey farm. Explore the rich agricultural history of Ireland and learn about the important role that donkeys played in it. Our knowledgeable guides will take you on a fascinating tour that showcases the ways in which donkeys helped farmers with tasks such as plowing fields and transporting goods. You'll even have the opportunity to harness and drive our friendly donkeys as they pull original farm implements and you can dress up in flat caps and waistcoats to get the ultimate insta-worthy photo. You'll also have the chance to experience various hands-on farming activities, including sheep shearing, wool washing, potato digging, along with collecting fresh eggs from our free-range chickens. During the tour you will get to stop at a scenic spot somewhere on the farm and enjoy a traditional Irish farmer's snack, dependent on what is in season and local, perhaps cheese, homemade chutney, wheaten or soda bread with a local beverage. (We will try our best to meet dietary requirements with prior notice) "Donkey Trail Through Time" offers a truly unique and immersive experience that combines history, agriculture, and hands-on fun. Don't miss out on this unforgettable journey through the fascinating history of Irish farming practices. Suitable for all ages and abilities.
