Animal Husbandry

As part of the school tour programme, Farmer Seamus would like to invite groups to accompany him as he does his morning rounds.

An array of farm animals live at Bunratty Castle and Folk Park, donkeys, sheep, deer, goats, ducks, and cows, amongst them. Ranging from our gentle old Falabella horse called “Frank”, the world’s smallest breed of horse, to our adopted rescue donkeys Millie & Tillie, right up to our Irish Red deer stag called Cormac, a direct descendant of the largest animal to ever roam Ireland. During the course of the year you will see cute and playful lambs, calves, kids, and piglets.
