Alpaca trekking in Fingal.
We are now closed for trekking until Spring 2021 and would like to thank all our visitors who made it such an enjoyable and delightful way to spend our weekends. We are working on our Hallowe'en event which will be family orientated. Keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram pages: Cornstown House Farm and cornstown_house
Remember, because of you, we can carry out the projects which give wildlife and other animals somewhere safe to shelter in Fingal, North County Dublin. Please accept our thanks and know that your visits are much appreciated.
We hope to see you all safe and well in 2021.
Should you wish to book a private visit to the farm to meet and spend time with the alpacas and other animals please contact us at 087 4173529 / 086 2393742 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Take care and stay safe.
Dominic and FIonnuala

Children must be accompanied by an adult - one adult may bring one child over twelve. However, we would ask that you let us know (just send us an email or a text) if you are bringing any children with you so we can cater for them too.
if you would like to come and walk with us with your children please email us and we can arrange a suitable walk and visit to the farm for you at a time that suits.
Come meet our alpacas and let them take you for a walk along our little patch of heaven - the wildlife corridor. Smell the wildflowers during the summer and watch the bees and butterflies as they dance from flower to flower.
You will meet the alpacas in the farmyard and head off for a walk around the edge of the farm to the newly planted forest. Maybe you would prefer to walk along the grey partridge cover strip which was planted all around the front field and see the hawthorn garden with its old water pump and sit under the hawthorn tree and think about how lucky we all are to be able to enjoy sitting under the hawthorn tree.
Meet and greet the alpacas in the farmyard and head off for a leisurely stroll along the wildlife corridor. Smell the wildflowers and watch the butterflies flit from flower to flower as you walk. Notice the Louth stone wall (in Dublin!) and follow the Mass path as it wanders down beside the hedge. Have a look at the willow plantation growing for next year’s baskets. See the newly planted forest and see can you see the shape in which it is planted! Come back to the farmyard and have a chat with Dominic about his ancient cereal project and listen as he explains all the various machines that were used to bring the crop from seed to harvest. Have a go at grinding your own grain to take home with you or try your hand at carding and spinning the wool from our Border Leicester sheep and the alpacas. Have a go at milking a goat and collect the eggs and enjoy the cuppa afterwards. There’s always lots to see and do at Cornstown House.
