    Thank you Darragh & co at the farm yard. We recently visited the farmyard for my sisters hen party & had a ball! From start to finish we never stopped laughing! The food is absolutely fantastic & those scones are the nicest i have ever tasted! The farmyard it’s self is spotless so well maintained! Every animal is so tame & well trained. Darragh was so accommodating & so nice to deal with throughout our visit! His witty humour & kind nature didn’t go unnoticed! We felt right at home! He had a tough job dealing with 20 hyper hens, but managed us very well! He & his helpers kept the crack going! I would highly recommend coming here for any occasion! There is something for every age group! Top class service is received & the attention to detail unbelievable! Thank you Darragh & co! Ye pulled out all the stops! We had a ball! We will be returning!

    I would like to say Thank you for helping to make the Hen weekend such a great success. From first contact with you, to first and final footstep at the Farmyard, I thought you were all great to deal with. We were all impressed with your premises, and the presentation at Lunch especially was just beautiful. just the right amount of lunch to get ready to "walk the land". Everyone had great fun. A true team building experience really.
