Dartfield Horse Museum and Heritage Centre
All children love Dartfield. What could be better than spending a day surrounded by horses, ponies and dogs? Because Dartfield is very much a working estate, in the spring time they often have lambs in the stables which need bottle feeding. Their friendly collection of Irish dog breeds are always delighted to see visitors.
There is so much for children to do at Dartfield. Apart from looking at the museum exhibits and seeing how their Grandparents lived, they also have a huge range of toys and games to amuse the small folk.
The Dartfield Treasure hunt is great fun. Test your knowledge and see if you can be the first one to negotiate your way around the clues to find the treasure!
The museum galleries at Dartfield are filled with exhibits that will fascinate visitors of every age. Colourful graphic panels display information about the evolution of the Irish horse, its use through history and how the different horse breeds developed. There are also exhibits of historic farm machinery and carriages.
Riding is available by the hour, half or full day. Hacking is available at Dartfield which will suit all riders from beginners to those advanced riders who just want to relax and enjoy the fresh air from the back of an Irish horse or a Connemara pony.
