We visited the farm on Easter Monday. €34 for two adults, a 4 and 2 yr old is expensive. I was surprised to hear that it is newly refurbished as it doesn't look finished. I am not an animal activist but I thought the ostrich looked distressed and one of the large pigs had a cut in it's ear that... More

I visited Rumley's farm yesterday, Easter Monday having heard that they were holding an Easter egg hunt. I went with my nieces and nephew and they had great fun, received lots of eggs, lollipops and jellies and there were dressed up Easter characters interacting with everyone. I would recommend it to others for next year. The farm itself was good,... More

I visited Rumley's farm today, easter Monday. I have a Fota wildlife membership card so I usually go there but I had heard about the Easter egg hunt here so decided to pay the entry fee & try Rumley's farm. What a fantastic day we had! The Easter egg hunts were fantastic, they were split into 2 groups, age 0-5... More

It's disappointing that I can't rate this 0! The place is shockingly bad. If you are thinking of going here then I strongly suggest that you go to Leahys Open Farm instead. Having been to both in 48 hours, there is no comparison. Considering that this place has only just opened for the season, it looks run-down and uncared for.... More

I visited Rumleys yesterday for the first time since it reopened 3 weeks ago, I was expecting huge improvements but instead I found it to be filthy dirty, I know it's a farm but the indoor area was actually disgusting. The new play area is a great extra but it's overshadowed by the lack of cleanliness. The go karts kept... More

I had my little girl's 3rd birthday party here last week and everything about the experience was positive, largely thanks to all the lovely staff. The guys who guided us around the farm were enthusiastic and so encouraging and patient with the little ones while interacting with the animals. It was very hands-on and the kids loved this. The guided... More

Had a fantastic time here with my 2 year old. Loved that it's a real working farm and she was able to see real life. She adored the new play area and getting up close to the animals.

Poorly staffed in restaurant. (30 minute wait for food) Restaurant was cold, coffee was cold, dirty tables and floors in restaurant. Indoor play a disgrace: Cold, miserable and absolutely filthy dirty. 3 sets of tables and chairs in indoor play. Sat on a dirty sticky leather couch. Refurbishment?? I'd say it's worse than it was last year. Shop looks nice.... More

I visited the farm with my husband and 2 year old daughter with the particular intention of using the indoor play area. I was appalled to see that it was absolutely filthy. The idea that they had a back door leading everybody who visited the farm to the main entrance was ridiculous as this would only drag the dirt from... More

I have bought season tickets for two years running to Rumley's. I have 4 children that range in age from 17 - 6 and they all enjoy coming here for a day out. This is a family run farm and you really get a sense of this as soon as you enter, all the staff are welcoming and friendly. As... More
