We are running fully guided, socially distanced tours of the farm from the start of July. The tour is completely outdoors, with a maximum of 12 people in each group.

David Walsh-Kemmis, the 13th generation farmer, will tell you the family’s stories, while showing you around the 18th century farmyard and stable yard, the growing barley and hops that are used to make Ballykilcavan beers, the champion black walnut tree of Ireland and the tunnel that leads to the 19th century walled garden.
