Every child gets a free horse ride on 'Bob' and can jump into the straw dive and search for hidden goodies. There is a rural life kitchen museum, a small gift shop, a café and picnic area in the courtyard. For 2012 three is a new tractor trailer ride (seating 40) and a tractor barrel ride for younger children. Finally there is a fantastic Christmas experience with Santa and his elves, Mrs Claus, Bethlehem Trail, mulled juice for adults and lots happening. All this can be booked online.
As well as families, the farm specialises in group tours (over 10 persons). It also offer very enjoyable guided tours for school tours, OAPs, clubs, special needs and all types of groups. Tullyboy Farm tailor the tour to the requirements of each group and make it a fun, interesting and educational experience for everyone. There is plenty of hands on activities such as feeding of the animals. Both young and old enjoy the rural life museum, where you get a feel for the Ireland of 50 to 100 years ago. Groups must book in advance and food requirements can be catered for.
Look out for the special events every bank holiday weekend in season, when among many activities, you can enjoy the Tullyboy Farm Sheep Stakes which is a sheep race with teddy jockeys and is a great hit.
