Easter-time 2023 at Newgrange Farm
Set in Ireland’s ancient east in the magical Boyne Valley, Newgrange Farm is one of Ireland’s first open farms. Only 30 minutes from Dublin and with easy access from the motorway. Discover all the fun life on the farm has to offer. A great family day out at Easter-time.
Lambing Live March 17th to 31st
There’s so much to see and do on the farm but springtime is especially busy as lambing is in full swing. It really is something to see a lamb being born – just bear in mind that sheep can’t lamb on demand but with over 300 in the flock, the odds are stacked well in your favour! Note: Some activities, like go-karting, are unavailable during the lambing period as the animals are temporarily occupying this area. Check here for all the activities and wonderful facilities at Newgrange Farm.
Easter Eggs-tra Activities –
Easter time on the farm is action-packed too with plenty of eggs-tra activities to enjoy. Unleash your inner artist and design an eye-catching Easter bonnet and bring it with you to enter the competitions over the Easter weekend – prizes for the best entries.
You can enjoy the Newgrange Sheepstakes too. At 4pm on each day (weather permitting) see the Teddy Jockies urge their sheep down the stretch and across the finish line. It’s guaranteed to make you smile. Got a shepherd’s enquiry? Sheep racing also takes place every Sunday and bank holiday too (again, weather permitting).
