Airfield Estate is Dublin's only 38-acre working farm which is open to the public all year round. On the estate you will find many attractions including the Overend family home, kitchen, gardens, vintage cars, farm and play area. Get cosy with the hens, collect freshly laid eggs at 10:00 or see the beautiful Jersey herd being milked at 10:30. Make friends with the goats, pigs, hens and donkeys and, if you time it right, you’ll see them getting fed by the farm team at 11:00 and 15:30.
Explore the Overend family home and vintage car garage to learn more about the Estate’s historic importance and original artefacts. There are guided tours from Wednesday to Sunday.
Enjoy seasonal walking trails taking in the native woodland and bounty of wildlife on the estate. Take in the beautiful gardens, designed by head gardener Colm O’Driscoll and internationally renowned guest gardeners with century old redwoods and fruit trees. This is the perfect spot for a chat, a good book or a picnic.
There are miles of tracks and paths to explore and play areas dotted all over the estate for kids up to 12 years old.
There are gentle lawn games in the summer months, fancy dress in Airfield House, an outdoor story corner, a barn full of toys for imaginative play for children and an outdoor adventure playground with climbing frames, scramble nets, slides, swings, balance beams, tunnels and a zip wire for young thrill seekers.
