School Groups at Kia Ora Mini Farm.

Kia Ora is an open farm which is ideal for school tours and caters for schools and other visitors from all over Ireland including, Wexford , Wicklow, Waterford, Carlow , Kilkenny and Dublin. Our spacious open farm offers plenty of room for group tours and we have ample tractors, karts and diggers for everyone. Our indoor and outdoor pet areas offer a large variety of animals that children get to hold and feed from the usual farmyard variety to some more exotic such as llamas, emus, alpacas, pot bellied pigs etc.

Our open farm is a safe place for children to roam and learn about the animals and for adults to relax. We have an onsite coffee shop with mouth watering homebaking but picnics are also welcome and we have ample outdoor seating for those fine summer days.

Our open farm is fully wheelchair accessible, has cement paths, toilets, baby changing facilities and we offer free carparking in our large carpark. Some of our facilities include sandpits, a football pitch, a rough rider track and we have a convoy of ride on tractors. We are currently growing a new forest around the farm and hope to continue to improve and grow for the future.

LARGE GROUPS/PARTIES/CORPORATE EVENTS CAN BE ARRANGED AT OTHER TIMES BY APPOINTMENT.  ALL VISITORS WILL RECEIVE A TRIP ON THE KIA ORA MINI FARM FIRE ENGINE.

Adults on their own and of course couples are also welcome at the farm and we find that many couples find it a romantic change from the normal date especially if they love animals as much as we do at Kia Ora Open Farm.

Don’t forget your camera!
