Farm Visits in Sligo

We’ve had a few enquiries about farms that are open for people to visit. Here’s the ones that we know are open, pre-booking is essential:

South Sligo:

Quarryfield Farm Experience. Pay a visit to a working farm and get up close and personal with the many animals. There are friendly lambs and sheep, George (the Sligo Nose of Tralee) and Bernie, the pigs, Bob and Marley the dogs, horses, George and Ezra the alpacas – and the new additions: Roxanne and Jolene, the pygmy goats.

Eagles Flying. A lot of people think this is just a place to see birds, but it’s so much more than that. There is an extensive petting farm with all kinds of animals, including a raccoon that picks pockets, foxes and so much more.
