Summer at Slane Farm

Posted in  Latest News,-49- by Gemma Macken 0 comments

We hope you all have been having a lovely summer!  We have been very busy, even putting baby Emily to work on the farm!

We had a wonderful time at Bloom in the Park on June bank holiday weekend. Our friends from Funtasia brought a snake from their Reptile Zoo, which was quite a surprise for our Hostel Manager Meghan. Everyone grew to love him by the end of the day, and he was a great hit with the kids!

We hope to see you this summer!

If you are bringing the family to Funtasia or Tayto Park, keep us in mind for your accomodation.
