Not far from the Muckross House estate, these farms demonstrate traditional life as it was in previous centuries in County Kerry. It’s cleverly done—the farmhouses and barns are so authentically detailed that you feel as if you’ve dropped in on the real deal. In a way, you have. Work really happens here: Farmhands work the fields while the blacksmith, carpenter, and wheelwright ply their trades. Women draw water from the wells and cook meals in historically accurate kitchens. There’s also a petting zoo, where kids can handle some of the animals. A coach constantly circles the grounds, ferrying those with mobility problems between different areas of the farm. Note: A combination ticket allows you to visit Muckross House and Gardens for a small extra fee.
