Located just south of Cork city off the N27 Rumley's provides a great opportunity for kids to have hand-on interaction with farm animals as well as many other exhibits. Good play park.

They do a quality job at Rumley's Open Farm and I applaud their commitment to these beautiful animals! Not to mention the amazing Newfie dogs that greet you Miley & Cyrus!

Indoor and outdoor play areas, mini golf, zip wire, karts, etc (all included in the €8 entry fee). Add a big and comfy coffee shop, gift shop and excellent toilet... More
