Our Paddocks

Conservation of rare breeds

We are very proud to showcase our animals in their natural environment, allowing to happily graze in the paddocks around the Folk park.

A visit to Bunratty Folk Park offers the unique opportunity to learn about these beautiful animals – how they are cared for, their feeding routines and how we ensure they experience the best level of care and comfort while resident here at Bunratty.

Learn about how we play our part in preserving breeds of animals native to Ireland in particular indigenous breeds of sheep, goats, cows, pigs, ponies, and poultry which would have been popular in the early 1900’s, the period on which the folk park is based upon.
