Causey Farm

Disover Causey Farm, a gem of old fashioned Irish hospitality. The Murtagh family have been farming on Causey Farm for three generations and love to share their heritage, food, farm traditions and even sport with visitors.

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.

 

 Causey Ice Cream Adventure

 July 1st to Aug 30th 2020 every day excluding Tuesdays. A safe and fun day out for you and your family at Causey Farm.

 Follow the socially distanced Ice Cream Trail where you’ll get a chance to meet your favourite farm animals and a few you might not expect to meet here. During your adventure there’ll be games to play, puzzles to solve and characters to meet, with plenty of opportunities for a family photo.

 Activities

  • Moo-ral art - each family will get a box of chalk and a classroom sized blackboard to draw their favourite ice cream or produce any other artwork they want to impress with.
  • Toppings challenge - see how long it takes to find all six ice cream toppings in the laurel garden.
  • The Causey flower power house – come on in, it’s an outdoor version of your home and gives a whole new meaning to interior (or is it exterior?) decoration.
  • Working farm – there are plenty of animals to see, cows and calves, sheep and lambs, horses and donkeys, a retired camel, alpacas, llama, hens, turkey, geese, ducks, rabbits and the pigs with their cheeky little piglets. They have really missed people during this lockdown.
  • Let’s scream for ice cream – enjoy a complimentary scoop along the trail.
  • Fancy footwork – can you guide the ball through the ice cream maze?
  • Giant bubble blowing – fun for children big and small.
  • Don’t forget to stop by the Cow’s Lick Cream Parlour where there’s not only ice cream, but there will be waffles, crepes and homemade treats.
  • All tickets must be pre-booked. Tickets on sale now.
