Neat tour

We learned about the history of Northern Ireland, met the horses and cut peat chunks from the ground. It was a nice touch to our visit in Northern Ireland.

the visit to the farm included interaction with the horses and a demonstration of the harvesting of peat moss. The owner was very enthusiastic and gave us a great tour. The hospitality of tea and scones was appreciated.

All of the children - even those who were initially nervous - enjoyed it immensely. The ponies were very well behaved & staff who accompanied us were friendly & competent. We were provided with a barn for the... More
