The Farmyard

The Farmyard

Surprise your friends by having a hen party with a difference! The Farmyard provides the ideal location for great craic and fantastic memories in one of the most beautiful places in the West of Ireland. Catering for groups of all sizes, The Farmyard invites you to complete the ‘Farmyard Wife Preparation Course’ – which guarantee that every bride-to-be-will leave the Farmyard with all the skills necessary to become a fully-fledged, highly-skilled wife!

Activities for brides and their hen party troops include:

Milking a cow the old fashioned way and learning how to churn butter by hand. You’ll never be caught short of milk or butter again! Please note milking the cow is a seasonal activity so please check her availability!

Test your agility as you try to catch the cock under the watchful gaze of the nearby hens. Need we say more?

Demonstrate your ability to juggle a number of tasks as you face the farmyard challenges which are focused on fun, fun and more fun!

Discover your knowledge of your fianceŽ as you participate in a Mr and Mrs Farmyard Treasure trail.

Develop a skill for life and prepare for your wedding day as you learn about the Siege of Ennis in its native county.

And if all else fails – learn how to make a loaf of traditional brown bread and feed it to your starving troops.

Upon completion of the course, the bride-to-be will receive her own much-coveted, ‘Farmyard Certificate’. Rumour has it that some priests are requesting a copy of this certificate as a prerequisite to the wedding registration process!

This action packed hen party package costs 35 euro per person (min 10 people) and takes approximately 2-3 hours to complete. Contact the Farmyard for details of other activities.

The Farmyard is just 10 miles outside Ennis. See our exact location on map.

The Farmyard
Co. Clare

One of Ireland’s most famous sights, the Cliffs of Moher are entirely vertical and the cliff edge is abrupt. On a clear day the views are tremendous, with the Aran Islands etched on the waters of Galway Bay. From the cliff edge you can just hear the booming far below as the waves crash and gnaw at the soft shale and sandstone.

With a due-west exposure, sunset is the best time to visit.
