After you buy your tickets, they have a shuttle that takes you from farm to farm, which is necessary, and do not take to long each time you need to be picked up. These traditional farm houses were privately owned in the 30's & 40's, prior to the use of electricity. In the small two room house we learned about... More

We visited on a sunny Sunday and spent about two hours walking round. Lovely place to stroll around even without children. As a couple we still enjoyed seeing the animals, enjoying the weather and seeing the old-style buildings. The actors weren't particularly to our liking as we don't enjoy them in general at attractions, but the one that we did... More

We visited as a family (with young teenager) on a quiet weekend. The houses are arranged from a simple farmhouse at the start ranging to a well-to-do farmhouse and yard at the finish. These buildings brought back many memories to me of my family and their stories of living arrangements in similar houses in Macgillycuddy's Reeks - but I did... More

We very much enjoyed this visit and believe it is a must see for anyone with kids visiting Irleand. Just the perfect combination of historical houses and plenty of animals to keep Adults and kids engaged. Personally I would visit even without kids and preferred this to the long dry tour of Muckross House which I'd skip next time. Lots... More

We visited the traditional farms at the recommendation of someone we met on the shuttle bus from town. It is only open weekends in winter starting in October. They had a senior rate so it saved us a little. The farm houses are a bit of a hike from the visitor center and from each other. That feels more authentic... More

The farm grounds are lovely. Hills of pasture, rocks, and nicely groomed hedges. Tons of sheep! The tour guide speaks with a microphone so it is easy for all to hear what he is explaining. They tell you about the sheep dogs and how the sheep are herded. You get to watch it in action as it is explained. There... More

We enjoyed touring the traditional farms after touring "the big house" and had a wonderful time in the fresh air. In a couple of the houses the "farm wife" was baking bread and we enjoyed sampling it, and watching butter being made. Lots of farm animals to watch and beautiful vistas as we went from one house to the next.... More
