Service Description

Hold a Baby Lamb Feeding time!Sometimes a mother can have just too many babies, and it is all too much for her – so the farmer helps out by bottle feeding one of them. Aedán is on a farm with many sheep, so this happens a lot, particularly in the spring and early summer, when he could be feeding several lambs - but there are always lambs to see on the farm, any time of the year. If you are lucky, you will arrive at feeding time and can help out bottle-feeding one of the cute lambs. Booking is highly advised so as not to be disappointed. The Beehive Huts These amazing structures, some over 1400 years old, are built using the corbelling technique, a style that goes back to the Neolithic.In the field beside the farmhouse you will see one of the largest early medieval houses in the county. It consists of 3 rooms, and there is also an underground passage or souterrain (currently not accessible). This was probably used for storage, and possibly also for hiding in. The building is called Cathair an dá Dhoras in Gaelic (the language spoken in Aedán’s family. This means 'the fort of the two doors', and is also known as Cathair Sayers (Sayers' fort). Where to find us: We are situated on the Dingle Peninsula in County Kerry in the south-west of Ireland. We are directly on the Wild Atlantic Way, right beside the carpark/discovery point for Ceann Sléibhe (i.e. Slea Head), which tells you that you have reached one of the most spectacularly beautiful parts of the drive!
