I was lucky to attend a birthday party recently for my nephew in Clonfert Pet Farm. A super family day out with so much to do!
Hidden away down a little country road you are pleasantly surprised to come across this gem, with supervised parking by a lovely gentleman ensuring easy access and exit from your day out.
The sun shone brightly the day we visited. We got there early so myself and my daughter Casey decided to take a walk around before the rest of the party arrived. There is so much to do!
We set out to see the animals first before it got busy. Clonfert is a petting zoo so the children get to hold and pet rabbits, hamsters and other small animals. We also fed the hungry horses, a big hit with my daughter. They have donkeys, lamas, birds, ducks. The animals are friendly and used to people.
Clonfert also offers two playgrounds and a bouncy castle which are free to use throughout the season. You can visit the fairies, a popular activity with young children. We had fun finding the fairy doors and reading their names.
You can partake in mini golf at €2 per person and there is also an indoor play area if the rains come! There is outdoor go-karts and a huge football pitch to run off that lunch.
The staff are amazing! So nice to deal with and very approachable. The food is great too. There is a lovely set up of tables and chairs outside which are perfect in good weather. Picnic tables are dotted around the farm and you can bring a picnic for a low cost day out. (Indoor seating is also available.)
The party rooms are light and airy, and the service again is second to none. The children are fed good quality goujons, cocktail sausages and chips, all freshly cooked. Endless jugs of juice are also provided. The parents were spoiled with tea and good coffee, a tray of sandwiches and some small finger foods.
After the party, the children were allowed to stay on and play as long as they wanted. They appreciate your business and in return, ensure people enjoy every moment at the Farm.
We highly recommend Clonfert for a birthday party or a family day out. It is good value for money and if you get the weather, you can spend the whole day there. Lots to keep the children entertained and happy!
