Animal experience hosted by Barbara

2 hours
Includes food, drinks, equipment
Up to 6 people
Hosted in English, French, Italian

What you'll do

You'll jump right into the field, meeting our lovely alpacas and horses.
You will know everything about them, about their life and habits.
I attended several Alpacas Classes where I get my advanced certificates with the British Alpacas Association and the Alpaca Association of Ireland.

You'll have the chance to meet 2 Alpacas Breeds! Huacaya and Suri. It's not easy to see Suri as they are very rare in Ireland!! You can meet them only at our farm nearby Loop Head and Kilkee!

You'll feed them directly, and grab one of them, if you feel ready to.
You'll have the opportunity to cuddle them, check them and train them too!
This experience is completely tailored on you!

You'll have the opportunity to meet and greet the chickens, and maybe you'll be lucky enough to pet them too!

We'll be back at home, and I'll show you a spinning wheel, that I use with the alpaca wool.
You can even have a try :) !!
In the meantime, I'll offer to you a nice tea or coffee with Italian homemade cakes.

We can talk even to you about Irish bees, as we are member of the Beekeeping Association of Ireland, Chickens, cats, and not forget our welcome party dog!

My boyfriend and I loved our time at The Flying Alpaca! We loved hearing Barbara and her husband talk about their beloved animals. We walked, fed, and hugged them. Also, one of the best parts is we didn’t have to worry about capturing that special moment. Barbara and her husband took over 80 candid pictures on their iphone which came out great! Highly recommend:)

We had a lovely afternoon with Barbara and Mike and their alpacas. You could really feel the sense of respect and deep affection they had for all of the animals on their farm. We attended as four adults in a private group and got to pet, feed, and learn all about the beautiful alpacas. Afterwards we were served tea and cakes and got to try our hand on a spinning wheel for alpaca fur. Along the way we were accompanied by their dog Yuri, cats, and chickens. The whole experience felt very relaxed and personal. Would definitely recommend.
