As you travel around the Dingle Peninsula the patchwork green fields divided with hand built dry stone walls and ancient ditches stand testament to generations of hard-working West Kerry farmers. For many centuries they have carefully tended this land, growing crops on steep mountain slopes and raising animals on sheer rocky sea cliffs. Farming has been and remains an important way of life for many on the Dingle Peninsula.

Experience this way of life for yourself and learn about traditional farming on the Dingle Peninsula by visiting a Pet farm or Animal farm. These real working farms are educational and fun for both adults and children. Feed and pet a donkey, hold a baby lamb, watch sheepdogs at work or enjoy a real West Kerry farmhouse welcome with steaming hot tea and home baked scones. If you want to get the maximum farm experience while you are here you can even stay in farmhouse accommodation.
