“A1 day out”
Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

Went to kenneys pet farm on my last day of killarney holiday great selection of animals friendly staff lots of animals around free for the kids to pet feed hold a deer calves lambs sheep little pigs all v friendly animals on entrance the lady told us where everything was and not to let the kids chase the ducks or animals which I respected i thought the place was as clean as it could be it is a farm ! There is the odd poo on the ground but with all the animals around it's hard for there not to be again I stress it's a farm ! Swings and slides for the kids plus other things shop was basic bring a picnic would be my best advice lovely area to eat one away from the animals good parking wasn't in the indoor area as the weather today is fab I'd love to go again when my kids are older they'd really have a ball (eldest 2.5 at the mo)

“Fabulous day!”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

We took the family to the pet farm today. It was a fantastic day. Lots of little baby animals and we could pet and hold and snuggle to our hearts content. The workers at the farm were helpful, friendly and informative. Great value for money and engaging for the children. A must see!!

“Great for kids”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

One of our favorite stops in Ireland. If you're traveling with kids they will love this farm. Expect to get up close to all of the animals. There's a great indoor and outdoor play area and the highlight was bottle feeding the baby lambs!

“A parents dream!!!!”
Reviewed 14 May 2014 via mobile

We visited kennedys pet farm yesterday and had a fantastic day. Even with sporadic rain, we all loved it. We brought a picnic and started to eat it at the outdoor tables but retreated into one of the converted bus facilities to finish due to rain.....and also to save our food from the cheeky goats & kids that bounce up on to the tables and your lap to try and steal lunch!!! There is also a cafe on site if you don't want to bring your own but the buses are great fun as they have them converted with small snack tables covered in colourful oil cloth & driving area is fun the the younger ones. The animal collection is great with sheep and lambs roaming beside you. Chickens, dogs, puppies, kittens, goats, deer, pigs, calves are also roaming beside visitors or in pens easy to view. There is a huge indoor sandpit with an abundance of childrens wheelbarrows, buckets spades etc. just next to this is an area with bikes,tractors and play cars. But the best is through an indoor tunnel which opens out on to a huge shed which has been converted into an enormous maze/adventure playground. All in all, we had a fantastic day and our 4.5 year old hasn't stopped talking about it. Well worth a visit

“One of the most fun things we did in Ireland”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

We (my wife and I) visited Kennedy's pet farm after a long day of driving the Ring of Kerry. Let me tell you, the second we walked in, I was blown away with this place. The woman who runs it may have been one of the friendliest people we met in Ireland. She walked us through the farm area and gave us a mini tour of the place. At first we felt a little weird going to a petting zoo without any children, but once we got there we saw there were a bunch of adults there, and having just as much fun as the kids.

It is not like any petting zoo that I have been to in US. You walk into an open enclosure and there are just animals walking around - goats, lambs, chickens, dogs, cats, pigs, deer. It was amazing. You could just walk up to a baby goat, pick it up, hold it and feed it. It was so much fun and certainly one of the highlights of our trip.
