Leahy’s Open Farm

Leahy’s Open Farm is located in East Cork, just 3 miles from the village of Dungourney. From Midleton it only takes 15 min to get there. With the sun shinignfor a change yesterday morning, we headed off early to get some snack at Midleton farmer’s Market and went to Leahy’s open Farm straight after.
We have been to a few different ones before but never to Leahy’s so I wasn’t sure what to expect. We arrived just after 11am and it was still quiet around. We had a look around the museum first and the kids were really interested in all the vintage collectibles the farm exhibited.
We checked out all play areas – and they are plenty!
The kids had such a fantastic time! We could have spend all day there and they still would have not gotten tired of it! We saw all the animals and went to the Jolly Barn for feeding time. The kids had the chance to feed the goats, sheep and pigs. They got to hold a snake and pet bunnies, mice and guineapigs. The kids went on go-karts and took a ride with the barrel train. After that we went into the original farm house and Jack – the grandson of the original owner – told us about life back in the 18th and 19th century. It was fantastic! The kids learnt so much!
The whole day spend on the farm was really educational and lots of fun as well! I could go on and on and rave about the Farm but you are better off experiencing it yourself! It’s a fantastic day out and for 9 Euro per person admission, money very well spent! You can bring your own snacks or picnic but the café has a great choice of food and snacks as well.
