Glen Keen Farm, Co. Mayo

Lovely Louisburgh

On my recent visit to Mayo I paid a visit to Glen Keen Farm in Louisburgh. The farm is located on the Leenane road (R335) and was a welcome place to stop and stretch my legs after a long drive from Belmullet (I took the scenic route, which took about 3 hours!)

Smiling lamb

The farm is a working sheep farm and is such a happy place even the lambs smile! There are lots of different activities to try when you visit Glen Keen Farm including:

• Meet the farm animals

• Traditional Turf Cutting

• Sheep Herding Demonstrations

• Nature Walks

• Archaeological sites

• Famine walk

You can always try hill walking too as Glen Keen is nestled between the Sheafrey & Mweelrea Mountain ranges, providing a spectacular backdrop to the farm.

Catherine owns the farm with her husband Jim. She was lovely and welcoming and I really enjoyed my visit there.

Cakes

The coffee shop is just lovely, talk about spoilt for choice with the selection of cakes. I was tempted to try one of each but I thought I’d better not 😉

Tracy

I met Tracy from Twitter at the farm and we had a great chat over a coffee. To our surprise one of the staff members started singing and all the customers joined in! If I could sing I probably would have done too but I didn’t want to frighten anyone!

Singing

It was a lovely day out and highly recommended. You can find the farm on Facebook and their website is here.

The rest of my photos are here.
