Being a Dubliner through and through, I can’t lay claim to the life of a farmer, but like most Irish city children – some of my fondest memories of family holidays were spent on Irish farms in the country.
Many a summer was passed surrounded by clucking hens, adorable donkeys and even a feisty goose (which I have vague recollections of being chased by…). Everything was an adventure to us back then, from going on missions to collect hidden eggs to reaching the summit of mountainous haystacks and bravely splashing through the muddy puddles with our trusty welly boots.
Now that I am an adult I can safely say that these were some of my most cherished moments of my childhood, so I thought I would gather a list of some farms in Ireland where you and your family can make your own memories. All of these farms offer their own unique experience, with each being authentically Irish.
