For a joyful and triumphant Christmas experience, bring the little ones to Tannaghmore Rare Breeds Animal Farm this month where they can watch in wonder as the world’s greatest story ever told is brought to life.

There’s plenty of room at the inn for families far and wide to flock to this star attraction where the biblical narration of baby Jesus’s birth is recreated in a stable setting, surrounded by the farm’s award-winning rare breeds.

Little faces are guaranteed to light up as they discover the true meaning of Christmas beholding the extraordinary sight of baby Jesus lying in a manger, sheltered with Mary, Joseph and the three Wise Men, complete with real farm animals.

The farm, which is the only ‘Rare Breeds Survival Trust’ approved Conservation Farm Park in Ireland, has a wide range of animals including Irish Moiled, Dexter and Shetland cattle, Galway and Jacob sheep, award-winning Oxford Sandy, Black pigs along with a large number of poultry and waterfowl.

The live manger will be on display every day from Sunday 8th until Sunday 29th December 10am to 4pm. Admission is free. It will be closed on Christmas Day.

In addition to visiting the farm, families can enjoy a relaxing fun day out at Tannaghmore Gardens, with its newly refurbished play park, Master McGrath maze and beautiful gardens.
