Tinahely Farm Shop is an award winning shop, restaurant, children's activity centre and animal walkway that has something for all the family. They were featured by the Brennan Brothers "At Your Service" and RTE's "Nationwide" TV programs and have been highly praised by the Irish Times. Rebecca Allen, who runs the business with her husband Philip Hadden, was runner-up in FBD's Women & Agriculture "Agribusiness Innovation" award in 2015 for her work at Tinahely Farm Shop.
In 2014 Tinahely Farm Shop was voted runner-up by Irish Times readers in their “Best Day Out in Ireland” survey and in 2017 Tinahely Farm Shop was cited by the Irish Times as one of Ireland’s “20 Hidden Treasures”:-
“Tinahely, Co Wicklow is a beautifully preserved village that offers a surprisingly rich day out. Children can immerse themselves in the Activity Barn at Tinahely Farm Shop which has ping pong, fuze ball and a large indoor beach. There are also donkeys, ponies, pot-bellied pigs and goats to pet and feed. But the real attraction is the on-site tearooms and gift shop where you can buy artisan foods to take on a picnic to the nearby Tomnafinnoge Woods, an ancient oak wood that provided timbers for Westminster Hall and the British naval fleet.”
Everyone will enjoy the delicious freshly prepared food in their Restaurant. They are famous for their Smoked Salmon & Cheese Boards, which have a wonderful selection of fresh local produce offering the very best tastes of Ireland.
There are lots more to enjoy for all the family including rare breeds in their Animal Walkway and Wicklow's only Indoor Beach, and an extensive children's Pedal Go Kart track, where they can safely play for hours on end, in all weathers.
