Causey Farm



The Murtagh family have been farming on Causey Farm for three generations and love to share their heritage, food, farm traditions and even sport with visitors. This 350 acre rolling farm is home to pasture fed sheep and cattle.

The Murtagh family breeds and trains sheepdogs and visitors can see them working in the fields during their visit. The small herd of Connemara ponies, natives of the west of Ireland will calmly welcome a friendly pat or a handful of grass as they pass along the farm trails through fertile grassland.

The nineteenth century stone barns are used for traditional music workshops. Everyone can take part or just soak up the atmosphere. Lilly Murtagh is renowned for her cooking and visitors make traditional soda bread using her recipe. This is a real treat straight from the oven, after time in the fresh air.
