Causey Farm is home to pasture-fed sheep and cattle with 350 acres of rolling farmland. The Murtagh family breeds and trains sheepdogs and visitors can see them working in the fields during their visit. The small herd of Connemara ponies, natives of the west of Ireland calmly welcome a friendly pat or a handful of grass as they pass along the farm trails through fertile grassland.
The nineteenth-century stone barns are used for traditional music workshops, take part or just soak up the atmosphere. Lilly Murtagh is renowned for her cooking and visitors can make traditional soda bread using her recipe. This is a real treat straight from the oven after you've spent time in the fresh air.
Searching For Santa
Sadly, Causey Christmas Experience cannot run this year but all the boys and girls would still love to meet Santa … everyone is wondering where he could be?
The journey starts down the winding lane at Causey Farm. You’re here to search for Santa and maybe get a gift too. But only if you can find him!
Soon you will come across the curious village of Cracker-town. You will meet wacky characters along the way and don’t forget to ask everyone where the big man is! But watch out for the Grinch! That old grumpy-boots always sends people the wrong way!
Pass through Bethlehem and see some of the animals including Ivan the camel as you go. You never know who you might meet before you reach Santa’s Secret Valley … the Christmas elves live there.
Don’t worry if you still can’t find Santa – Tinsel who works in the post office definitely knows where everybody lives. You can post your letter in the post office as you drive past.
And when you leave the valley you will meet the big man himself, checking the final details before his big journey around the world. As always, he will make sure there are presents for all the children.
Before you go, you will get a chance to visit some of the animals who are resting in the sheds for the Winter and if you wish, have a family Christmas photo taken in the new barn.
