It didn't take very long to get around the farm and see all the animals but we had a great time! It's clean, easy to get around with strollers and the animals seem happy :-) We got to feed horses and goats and there were sheep, pigs and lots of chickens and ducks. We took a short walk to the amazing playground and the kids had a good time. I'm from America and this playground was so unique compared to anything I've seen at home (playgrounds at home are very good, but a bit cookie-cutter).

If you are going I'd recommend bringing snacks or a picnic lunch to eat at the park after a visit to the animals.

on visiting the farm today...after the 'great refurbishments' we were very disappointed to see that the small animal section was not open to the general public..only to group bookings!!
My little 4 year old granddaughter was really looking forward to seeing the baby chicks etc..
Had we known that this was the case we would certainly not have driven from Cookstown!!
Even thought this farm is free i would certainly not have minded paying if we could have had a worthwhile visit.

Thank rieson

We recently went to Tannaghmore Farm with a group of young children. It was not well sign posted so we wasted some time trying to find the place - our driver having to go and ask someone for directions. Then we had to drive back down the road to the turning, which did have a signpost for some other facilities, just not this one.
When we did arrive, there were some picnic tables, and a massive bird cage with a variety of birds inside. This made quite a nice setting for lunch, had it not been right in the middle of the car park! We had arrived when we said we would, but there was another group still there, so we were asked to wait outside until they were ready for us for about 15 mins.
The farm itself was nice enough, but the toilet facilities was minimal, and pretty smelly. This instantly made me feel that this was going to be a real disappointment - but the farm did actually improve as we moved away from this area.
The member of staff allocated to us was friendly and knowledgeable, and his priority was the enjoyment of the children. During the tour the adults had to walk at the front and rear with the children in the middle dictating the pace of the tour. This allowed them to touch the animals, hear stories about them, and in the case of the chicks and the rabbit - getting to pick them up and stroke them. There were a variety of pigs, some horses and lots of birds, as well as horses, some goats and a few other animals.
All in all, it was a novel experience for the children, having the hands on experience and getting up close to the animals. The surrounding gardens and park were lovely - this is where we actually sat and had our picnic, which was far nicer than the car park. This area also had better toilet facilities, and space for the children to run about. At the end of the day the children enjoyed themselves, which was the main point. Another reviewer was glad of no shop, I agree - but a place for the adults to get a coffee or tea would have been appreciated!

We wpuld highly recommend a trip to Tannaghmore farm to all age groups. We visited last summer with a group of 25 children aged between 5-10 years of age. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They gave us a guided tour and displayed great time and patience with the children when they were handling animals. There is also a great playgroup and picnic area, beautiful gardens and thankfully no shop.
We will be visiting again this year.
