Farmyard Discovery Trail

Join Kevin the Kid and his farmyard friends on a brand new interactive adventure at Newbridge Farm!

Join Kevin and his friends Tammy the Tamworth, Percy the Peacock and Rua the Robin on our brand new Farmyard Discovery Trail.

Pick up an interactive booklet at the Admissions Desk and use it to navigate your way around the farmyard and paddocks, completing challenges and learning lots on the way.

Say hello to our Shetland and Connemara ponies, pigs, goats, baby chicks, bunnies, birds and much more.

Take a break to enjoy your lunch and have some fun at Penny's Picnic and Play Area!

Visit our Kerry Cow's Mooternity Ward and meet the latest new arrivals to the farm.

Meander through the walled garden and orchard and enjoy all our plants and flowers (but please don't pick them!).

Solve puzzles, take rubbings and fill in the blanks to earn a special sticker in the Farm Shop at the end of the trail.

Here at Newbridge Farm we help to protect many traditional and rare breeds. The animals at Newbridge can move about freely and express normal patterns of behavior. We are proud to promote compassionate farming methods, respect for all animals and sustainable biodiversity.

Please note: Newbridge Farm is closed on Mondays from October to March.

The Paddock

Shetland and Connemara ponies are often found grazing in our paddocks, alongside the donkeys.

Our busy pond is home to ducks and geese, though the goats occasionally stop by to say hello and splash around too!

The Pastures

A small herd of prize winning Kerry Cows can be seen on our pastures, along with a flock of Jacob Sheep and Irish Draught Horses, which were the backbone of the transport and agriculture industry in Ireland many years ago.
