Glendeer Open Farm is situated just a few minutes from Athlone (though it’s actually just across the border in Co Roscommon, rather than in Westmeath!)
There is free parking and on entry you are given a bag of seed each which can be used to feed many of the animals on the farm. As well as plenty of animals (including meerkats, llamas and monkeys) there is a large playground, sand pit, obstacle course, mini maze, a 1750s farm cottage full of artefacts and a fairy trail to complete. Plus there’s an indoor play area too in case it rains. It’s a great day out. There is a small cafe and gift shop but you are also welcome to bring a picnic and there are picnic tables throughout the farm.
