Wandering Wicklow with Friendly Donkeys
There is something special about donkeys! How could you not love those long fluffy ears, gentle eyes, shaggy coat and cheeky character?
Come and enjoy an unforgettable donkey experience in the peaceful setting of our family farm in Wicklow.
What you’ll do
You will be warmly greeted when you arrive.
We will show you around our yard and tack room and briefly talk you through the experience to make sure you feel confident and comfortable with our long eared pals. We will share some insider tips and tricks about how to look after, halter, feed and groom donkeys and then you get to try it all for yourself when we catch the donkeys from their paddock.
During the time spent grooming and brushing your donkey, you will get to know each other a little and slowly build trust and a friendly bond. They are very social animals who love cuddles and a good massage with a brush.
Then off we go for our tour! The walk is fairly easy with a mixture of road and forest path and we take our time and never rush anyone. There is lots of time for hugs, kisses, selfies and photos with the donkeys and some beautiful views to enjoy too.
When we return it’s time to enjoy a cup of tea, coffee or hot chocolate and yummy biscuits and we will share some entertaining stories about our donkeys’ unique and quirky personalities and why Ireland has a particularly strong traditional link with donkeys.
