This was a pleasant day trip out from Dingle to Scanlon's Pet Farm. Forget zoos and captivity, this is where life on the farm is natural and easy. We were kept amused by the running little piggies through the yard - they were the cutest and so playful! Then there was the big sows - they looked grumpy! The hens, the peacocks, the geese, the deers and the cows all did their own thing as we looked in on their day - they didn't seem too bothered. There was a suprise in store down at the cottage located on the land, where we found little hamsters and beautiful little birds. Remember to bring a picnic and stop by the picnic bench at the river's edge and soak up the beauty of this special place, with views out to sea and with all the sounds of nature in the background, from the gushing of the river to the tweeting of the birds. This is Ireland at her best, true in nature and pure in spirit. We saw butterflies of all shapes and sizes floating about and busy little bees in the long grass and through the wild flowers of the meadow. Everything is here all you have to do is awake to the beauty and wonder of it - the wonder of nature is all around. This was a great visit and we all left uplifted and happy from the warmth of the farmer's chat and from the joy of the fresh air while we walked the land. A definite visit for all the family.

What a picturesque setting, the views are amazing. The proprieters couldn't have been more helpful. There was a broad range of animals all in good condition with plenty of space.
I remember visiting with my children last time we were here and they loved the hands on approach, being able to handle the animals and the helpful tips and information they were given.
