Tour an Irish Sheep Farm in the Heart of Co. Galway
Established as one of Ireland's premier farm experiences, Rathbaun Farm in Ardrahan, Co. Galway welcomes visitors with a "warm Irish welcome" and a wonderful insight into farming life both past and present.
Originally the home of the Burke and Connolly families, Fintan carries on the farming tradition on this 80 acre farm. The main livestock are sheep, and the land is limestone, free-draining soil, currently in permanent pasture.
Visitors to Rathbaun Farm will become enchanted by its 250 year old thatched cottage, turf fire and original stonewalls. Time spent here gives a glimpse into the daily workings of a sheep-farm with plenty of time to see the animals, feed the lambs, talk to the family and explore the farmyard.
We’ve been greeting visitors at the farm for many years. Frances and her team will welcome you into the cottage for some true Irish hospitality – home baked and freshly prepared scones, freshly whipped Irish cream and preserves along with tea or coffee.
