What to Expect at Airfield Estate

Airfield Estate is a working farm, we have cows, pigs, donkeys, sheep, chickens and goats to name a few. We’ve also got 38 acres of rich agricultural land, ornamental and food gardens, a state of the art interactive heritage experience, a restaurant which prides itself on good, honest estate harvested food and a café to grab a coffee and a treat.

We’re also a charity, located a short walk from the LUAS station at Balally and just a stones throw from the M50. We consider ourselves a rural experience in an urban location.

Dundrum village is a mere 5 minutes walk and we have ample free car parking (sometimes this is in the field) and we’ve parking for coaches.
