Glendeer is now closed and will reopen on Sat 29th Oct for our Spooktastic Halloween Event!

If you’re looking for somewhere to bring the kids for a day out over the summer … why not take them to Glendeer Pet Farm, 5 miles west of Athlone, exit 13 off M6, follow signs for Drum.  It has something for every age with new amenities for young and old, including the double obstacle course and the maze. You don’t even have to wait for a fine day to visit, because let’s face it you might be waiting; Glendeer is suitable for any weather as there are indoor & outdoor picnic & play areas incl. the suspended indoor play area and the soft play toddler’s area and indoor sand pit. There is a large section of the animals that are also undercover and while the children are cuddling the puppies the adults can relax in the coffee shop with fresh coffee/tea & homemade treats.

A visit to Glendeer Pet Farm is an interactive experience where people can feed, pet & hold some of the animals, which include rabbits, deer, pigs, llamas, alpaca, emu, goats, donkeys, sheep, monkeys & a raccoon, not to mention all the baby animals such as kid goats, lambs, emu chicks and the favorite for most, our very cute little puppies and kittens .

You will be amazed at how friendly all of the animals are as the wander up to you looking for food. Each child will get a bag of food to feed the animals as you make your way around the twelve acre farm. Why not make a day of it and bring a picnic along to enjoy in our indoor or outdoor picnic areas.

There is also a lovely secluded Fairy Trail adjacent to the old farm yard & cottage, which is a nice relaxing walk, but make sure to keep your eyes open for fairies as they have moved in and can sometimes be seen fluttering around.
