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.
Cause Ice Cream Adventure
A safe and fun day out for you and your family at Causey Farm.
The Causey Ice Cream Adventure will reopen on Saturday June 19th 2021.
This was a wonderful event last year, giving a much needed day out to families from far and near. This year they are extending the adventure … they have a few more challenges, a new Story Time Willow Walk, some potatoes to dig and extra characters to meet.
That is all along with the games, puzzles, trails, characters, giant bubbles and art installations you met last year, not to mention a scoop of delicious ice cream from the Ice Creamery. Causey Farm is a working farm which is home to cattle, sheep, ponies, pigs (and often piglets), hens, geese and a noisy gaggle of giggling geese.
Along the trail, everyone will get a complimentary scoop in the Ice Creamery Parlour in the old farmyard. After your experience you can choose to have a picnic or have some treats in the Cow’s Lick Ice Cream Parlour near the Car Park. They now have extensive areas for outdoor picnicking.
New this year – Swan pedal boats on the pond – there is a small extra charge of €5 per boat to take a trip on their swans.
Tickets will be available online from Monday June 7th.
