Glendeer Pet Farm

A visit to Glendeer Pet Farm is animal interaction at its' best! Spring is a great time to visit as there are baby animals arriving all the time such as kid goats, lambs and chicks.

People can feed, pet & hold some of the friendly animals, which include puppies, rabbits, deer, pigs, llamas, emu, goats, donkeys, sheep, monkeys, parrots, meerkats, wallabies, a racoon and lots more.

Not only do you get up close and personal with lots of the animals, but there are lots of other fun activities for all ages.

For the older kids there is the double Obstacle Course where they can race each other through various obstacles, even the competitive parents will want to get in on this action!

The maze is also great fun....you might not see the kids too easily but you will hear their squeals as they sneak up on each other and burn off lots of energy trying to find one another.

The indoor soft play area and the indoor sand pit are great for toddlers making the farm a perfect location for mother and toddler mornings, preschool outings or just to catch up with a friend and enjoy a good coffee while the kids play.

There is also a lovely secluded Fairy Trail adjacent to the old farm yard & cottage, which is a nice relaxing walk, but make sure to keep your eyes open for fairies as they have moved in and can sometimes be seen fluttering around.

So if you’re looking for somewhere to bring the kids for a day out ... why not take them to Glendeer Pet Farm, (8kms west of Athlone, exit 13 off M6, follow signs for Drum), a visit to Glendeer Pet Farm won't disappoint. Or why not avail of our Season Tickets, adults are €20 and children are €40, under 18 months are free and you have unlimited access from until the end of Sept and adults are free for the Halloween and Christmas Events.

Be amazed at how friendly all of the animals are as the wander up around you looking for food. Each child will get a bag of food to feed the animals as you make your way around the six acre farm.

i visited this pet farm with my two daughters and my son who is still a toddler, along with extended family in august as a family reunion. I must say this was one of the best days out we have ever had in Ireland! the staff were extremely friendly and one even let the kids hold both a puppy and a rabbit. there was both an indoor and outdoor playground which was great for when it began to rain! truthfully an excellent pet farm.”
