Busy Barn Mini Farm

Welcome

Busy Barn Mini Farm is a family run children’s farm just outside the beautiful village of Dunmore East, only 15 minutes drive from Waterford City and Tramore. 

It provides a fun, educational and great value day out for adults and children alike, whatever the weather. Busy Barn Mini Farm has lots to keep the kids occupied – meet the animals, have fun outside, or discover the indoor play area.  

We have a bright and airy café selling homemade cakes and light lunches. We have indoor and outdoor eating areas, and lots of space to run off some energy.

We can’t wait to meet you!

Outdoors

The outdoor areas at Busy Barn Mini Farm are as exciting as the indoor area! 

Our animals and birds in our mini farm are very excited to meet you all! We have a pony, pigs, sheep, goats and Terrance the Turkey likes to show off to visitors. Our ducks and geese will have a great chat with you as you pass by!

We also have an outdoor eating area where the adults can relax with a cuppa, and something nice to eat, from our café while the kids play.

Our rabbits often have little baby bunnies they like to show off too!

There’s lots to play on: swings, slides, climbing frame and a sand pit. We have little tractors and cars to pedal around in

We also have an outdoor eating area where the adults can relax with a cuppa, and something nice to eat, from our café while the kids play.

Indoors

No matter what the weather enjoy the soft play area for kids up to age 12.

We have large climbing frames, ball pools, slides and lots more. 

The entire kids area is covered in foam flooring for comfort.
