Our family adventures continue as we explore the little treasures Ireland has to offer. This week we landed upon Wexford Lavender Farm. This farm is Ireland’s first lavender farm and it’s hidden amongst the scenic countryside just outside Gorey. There is ample parking charged at €2 per car and a number of activities to keep the babogs entertained.

Upon arrival, the first thing you see is a massive field full of lavender, beds upon beds of lavender. Wandering through the lavender beds was something else, it’s pretty spectacular and the smell – amazing. I couldn’t resist getting some snaps of the kids.

The kids hitched a ride with ‘Billy the friendly Bull’ through the lavender beds and adjoining fields. The train ride cost €2.50 p/c and lasts about 5-6 minutes. They loved it.

There is a mini farm with some ducks, chicks, a horse, and pony just behind the playground. The kids were in their element as the keeper entertained them by showing off the cute little baby chicks.

There’s a secure playground with a wooden children’s frame, swings, a small slide for the babogs and some hay stack car type things for climbing too. In the grassy playground there is also a little hut selling light refreshments and there is some benches so you can relax watching over the kids.

There’s a delightful tea room called The Purple Haze and it sells the most delicious cakes, the menu if fantastic. The interior is very charming and homely. They also sell beautifully scented soaps, candles and body lotions amongst many other lavender based home-made items. The service was excellent, the food was reasonably priced and the atmosphere was really lovely.

There’s also a beautiful woodland walk right down the back of the beds but I wouldn’t recommend being heavily pregnant, bringing a buggy, scooter or trike down through it, as it’s very bumpy. I learnt the hard way!

Wexford Lavender Farm is open since last year and already comes highly recommended, it’s a hidden piece of heaven. We spent over two hours at the farm and I can guarantee you we will definitely be back!

  1. Oh what a beautiful looking place! I never even knew that Ireland had a lavender farm, I’d love to go for a visit and snap some pictures. Kayla and Frankie look like they had a ball in the lavender. You’ve made me so excited to go to the lavender farm in Jersey in two weeks time. I haven’t been since I was a child 🙂

    • I know such a shame it’s an hour’s drive from me. I’d be too afraid been so far into pregnancy to that far from home. I’ll have to keep an eye on their FB page to see what it looks like when they all bloom.

  2. How lovely! We’re going to a lavender farm tomorrow but they charge £5 per person, which is a shame and one of the reasons I waited until now to go!
    Looks like you all had a lovely time x

  3. It looks great fun for the kids! We have Lavender near Hitchin too. We went there last Summer and love it! Though there was no cool train and playground like Wexford Lavender Farm. My boy would have of love that too! 🙂 #PicknMix

  4. What a great place and looks like you had great fun. I have always wanted to visit a lavender farm, lavender is so beautiful, but we don’t have one near here that I’m aware of so maybe one day. #whatevertheweather

  5. The lavender fields look lovely! You’re lucky to have that nearby, I’ve never visited one before, probably because we don’t have good enough weather up here in Scotland. The bull train looks a great idea, my boys would love it! Beautiful photos if your children too.
    Thank you so much for linking up to #Whatevertheweather 🙂 x

  6. I would love to go to some lavender fields. They look so beautiful. I wish we had some near us. Your pictures are stunning and that friendly bull ride looks so cool! I’ve never seen anything like it. It sounds like you had a really lovely day out, with lots to explore.
