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

An area for hens where children are welcome to throw some small pieces of bread and watch the hens eagerly peck away.  Depending on the time of year we sometimes have baby chicks.

We have three lovely friendly goats to visit who get very excited if they are given some leaves to munch on.

We have adorable donkeys that are such fun to watch as they roll around to thank you if you give them a carrot.

Our rare breed of Jacob sheep are located throughout the 100 acre farm.  If you visit us in May or June you will spot tiny lambs skipping about the field edges.

From Abhainn Ri you can walk through the fields of the farm and down to the Blessington lake shore.

Special Option:

While staying at Abhainn Ri you can go on a farm tour and feed the animals with farmer Joe. Please book a farm tour in advance while booking your stay with us.
