Marlhill Open Farm Tipperary

Marlhill Open Farm is Tipperary’s newest open farm. It is owned and operated by the Fitzgerald Family -Patrick and Noreen, Ryan now almost 12 who helps with the animals some weekends, Richard is 10 and often plays soccer with children when they are around the farm , Kate is 8 and helps inside and outside too sometimes, Ellie is nearly 7 and could be found anywhere.

The Fitzgeralds have travelled extensively and visited many family destinations around Ireland and Wales and they know what a family needs to have a fun day out.

Relax and enjoy getting up close and personal with their animals or have a cuppa in their brand new café while the children burn off steam in the indoor and outdoor play areas.
