Here at Tinahely Farm we have created the ideal environment for school tours. We have a very safe and engaging space for Children to play in and engage more with nature.

Our barn can hold upto 110 children at a time, and teachers are so delighted at the way the children just play away! The beach is a big hit with the children. Some families may not not able to get to the beach for what ever reason but here in Tinahely Farm it is different!

We have hosted many play schools and creches in the past with their parents, helpers, guardians or family members accompanying then – and both adults and children had a ball.

Ballon creche are regular visitors. Saint Aidan’s National School in Co.Wexford have come here with up too 110 children and they had a ball….the teachers were in shock how smoothly the whole tour was.

We are lucky to have Kilavaney National School here in the village come to us each year the whole school will come for a visit to pick pumpkins – an extra treat for the children during the year
