Welcome to Glendeer Pet Farm

Glendeer is an award winning pet farm located outside Athlone. A visit to Glendeer Pet Farm is a fun, family day out…it’s animal interaction at its’ best! Visitors can feed and pet the animals which include deer, pigs, llamas, alpacas, emus, goats, donkeys, sheep, monkeys & a raccoon, not to mention all the baby animals such as kid goats, lambs, emu chicks and the little puppies. Each visitor receives a bag of food to feed the animals as they walk around the 12 acre farm. 

There is a Fairy Trail across from the old farmyard and cottage, look out for the fairies houses and you may be lucky and spot a fairy fluttering past you. There is an outside play ground with picnic tables for you to enjoy your lunch.

For those rainy days there is an indoor play area, some of the animals are also undercover so no rainy weather will stop you from enjoying your day on the farm. A visit to Glendeer Pet Farm won’t disappoint, not only will you enjoy getting up close with the friendly animals and maybe see a fairy, but with all the other excitement to be had at the farm, you will find it hard to get away.
