Greenan Maze Activities

  • Greenan Farm"Greenan Farm Museum And Maze"

The many farm animals prove a great attraction for the all kids as well as the adults. It is still a working hill-farm with many animals in their  farm-yards and paddocks. Farm-yard animals include pigs, ducks, turkeys, geese, hens and chicks. In the paddocks we have horses, a donkey, sheep and lambs. You may also be able to see a cow and calf depending on the season.

  • The Maze

Standing on half an acre, this tricky Celtic maze will positively puzzle you! A stream flows through it to the pond in the middle and a viewing tower overlooks the excitement below. Unique in design, this hedge maze is the highlight of most people’s day.

  • Solstice Maze"The Greenan Solstice Maze"

The new Solstice Maze is a relaxing, contemplative pathway for adults, set within a large stone circle. It allows a chance to un-wind and enjoy the tranquility of the beautiful Wicklow Mountains. It was created on the winter solstice, December 21st, and there are 21 stones encircling 4 large standing stones representing the seasons.

  • Museums

Take an imaginative trip into a by-gone era and try to envisage how craftsmen plied their trade when farming life depended on horse drawn machinery and hand-made materials. An educational stroll around the museums will leave you with a sense of wonder and respect for a time of hard work and worth-while craftsmanship. This impressive collection is one of the largest in Ireland.

  • The Old Farmhouse"The Greenan Maze"

Dates from the 16th century and was a safe-house for Irish rebels, such as Michael Dwyer and Andrew Burke, in the 1798 rebellion.
Genuine weapons, including pikes, are on display. The farmhouse is fully restored with original furniture and utensils for the bedroom, dairy and kitchen.

  • Farm Animals

Everyone will love viewing the farm animals in the paddocks. With many cute and cuddly new additions during the year, you can often see baby lambs, pig-lets and chicks as they totter around the farm-yard or frolick in the fields.
The draught horses are in retirement and are kept company by two cheeky donkeys, Neddy and Ernie. See sheep and lambs as well as pigs, ducks, bronze turkeys, geese, hens and chicks, including an extensive display of pure breeds (and some rare breeds too).

  • Wild Nature Walk"Greenan Farm Museum School Tours"

The nature trail is a tranquil walk which meanders by Ballinanty Brook through beautiful unspoilt countryside and a wild-life nature reserve. It leads to the Dragonfly Walk which is a raised wooden walkway winding through native woodlands and wetlands reaching three peaceful ponds with raised viewing platforms. It is an unspoiled area which supports an abundance and diverse range of wild-life including wild deer, moorhens, frogs and dragonflies
