Causey Farm in Fordstown, County Meath, is a gem of old fashioned Irish hospitality. 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.

Causey Farm is home to pasture fed sheep and cattle with 350 acres of rolling farmland. The Murtagh family breed and train 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, welcome a friendly pat or a handful of grass as they pass along the farm trails through fertile grassland.

The 19th century stone barns are used for traditional music workshops, where you can take part or just soak up the atmosphere. Lilly Murtagh is renowned for her cooking and visitors can make traditional soda bread using her recipe. This is a real treat straight from the oven after time spent in the fresh air.

There are a number of events and activities to enjoy at Causey Farm. Dogitude, the Irish dog lovers festival, takes place in May. August hosts Causey August Weekend Adventure. Farmaphobia which is Causeys Halloween event, runs from October to November.
