You don't even have to wait for a fine day to visit, because let's face it you might be waiting; Glendeer is suitable for any weather as there are indoor & outdoor picnic & play areas incl. the suspended indoor play area and the NEW soft play toddler's area.
There is a large section of the animals are also undercover and while the children are cuddling the puppies the adults can relax in our coffee shop with fresh coffee/tea & homemade treats.
Be amazed at how friendly all of the animals are as they 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.
Why not bring a picnic along to enjoy, but beware of the greedy donkey who can spot a picnic bag a mile away & will try to join you, if they don't the hens will!
There is also a lovely secluded 6-acre nature trail adjacent to the old farmyard & cottage which is a nice relaxing walk & may transport the older generation back in time.

“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.”
