Yola Farmstead

Yola Farmstead is where your family can discover their culture and heritage, and to see how their ancestors lived and worked through the vernacular buildings, a working windmill, bygone farm machinery and exhibitions of the age old art of thatching.

The farmstead is home to many breeds, families, and species of animals.  From fawns to pheasants, and from rabbits to pigs which play an important part of the “Animal’s Corner” and children’s playground.

View the working Windmill, which is a beautiful copy of another windmill to be found in Le Havre, France or find out how to milk, make cheese, and butter in “The Dairy”  

Throughout the day, a feast of homemade fare is available at “Granny’s Kitchen”, and then, when evening falls, enjoy an authentic Irish meal by the warm glow of the open fire while being entertained by traditional musicians, mummers, singers and dancers.
