Wexford – Carrigbyrne Mini Farm


Carrigbyrne Mini Farm

Carrigbyrne Mini Farm is a great way for kids to interact with animals and enjoy a family day out in Wexford. There is plenty to interest everyone in the family from meeting the animals on the farm to playing the playground or even having a go at riding the tractors. The animals are well used to human contact and so children are free to wander around to feed and touch the animals at their own pace. The adults can take a well earned break in the coffee shop while the kids enjoy their day out.
