About

One of the major attractions of Craigavon City Park is Tannaghmore Gardens, centred on ‘Fairview House’, a listed Georgian Farmhouse dating from the late 18th Century.  The gardens are a popular venue for outings and family visits. The animal farm offers close encounters with many animals traditionally found on farms in Ulster 100 years ago. Many of these breeds are now rare and close to extinction; they include Irish Moiled Cattle, Dexter Cattle, Galway Sheep, Saddleback Pigs and a wide range of Poultry. Guided farm tours are a speciality. Within the gardens there are 17 different styles of traditional gates, named after local townlands.

A stroll around the gardens will reveal interesting tree sculptures and it is possible to follow a tree trail of both native and exotic trees. A country styled play area has been constructed using wooden play equipment suitable for young children, with the aerial slide proving popular for older children.

There are picnic areas and BBQ facilities along with two indoor halls that can be booked for parties and other events.  The grounds also contain two football pitches and a cricket square.  A recent development has seen the construction of a large maze from gabion baskets and evergreen trees and at its centre is interpretive material telling the story of Master McGrath, the famous greyhound.

The Animal Farm is owned and run by Armagh City, Banbridge & Craigavon Borough Council, and offers close encounters with many breeds of farm animals. These include traditional breeds of cattle, sheep, pigs, goats, and poultry. Many of these breeds are now rare and close to extinction.

We are currently the only Rare Breeds Survival Trust Approved Farm Park in Ireland and are working with the RBST on active conservation breeding programs to help preserve these breeds for future generations.

Entrance to the Farm is free of charge and a great day out of the whole family. The farm is suitable for buggies and has accessible toilets and baby changing facilities
