Farm Experience

Visit our Farm Animals

Abhainn Ri Farm is a 100 acre working farm located on an elevated site above the Blessinton lakes in County Wicklow.

New for 2017

Guests staying at Abhainn Ri can now enjoy the freedom to walk on the farmland and visit the farm animals at their leisure. We have a great selection of farm animals and guests are welcome to visit them anytime during their stay.

The farm animals are located in various paddocks and small grouped areas with easy access for families with small children.   During 2017 guests can visit whenever they wish.

We have:

Hens, ducks, chicks, goats, donkey’s, pony, Jacob sheep and some small farm animals.

A small area for hens and ducks where children are welcome to throw them  small pieces of bread and watch them eagerly run about to catch them.  A lovely selection of coloured hens, ducks and depending on the time of year some baby chicks.

We have three lovely friendly goats to visit who get very excited if they are given some leaves or simply attention.

We have adorable donkeys that are such fun to watch as the roll around to thank you for the carrot gift.

Our rare breed Jacob sheep are located throughout the 100 acres and you can visit and view the most a amazing selection of colours.  Great to stay and visit in May or June when the tiny lambs are skipping about the field edges.  A delight to watch.

A great walk to the Blessington lake shore where you can enjoy a visit to the farm animals  along the way.

Great freedom for 2017 for all our guests to enjoy.
