Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Board your motorcoach and travel north from Dublin to family-owned Causey Farm in County Meath. Your hosts are the Murtagh family, and your introduction to life in the countryside begins with a pot of tea and freshly baked scones, a family specialty. 21 years ago, Tom and Lilly Murtagh sat down with their family and made the decision to open their farm to the public to show visitor's just what life is like on the farm and this is your chance to experience it for yourself!

Located in the heart of the rich Meath grasslands, Causey Farm raises sheep and cattle as well as a small herd of Connemara ponies. Try your hand at cutting turf, Ireland's traditional winter fuel. Join in the wild game of hurling - and discover its long history in Irish culture. Take part in a working demonstration with the farm's sheep dogs and master the fine art of baking soda bread. There is music and dancing in the barn as well as other farm activities depending on the weather. Your day in the countryside includes a hearty luncheon.
