Baby Cria with Mum and Aunty watching over her


As the largest breeding farm for Alpacas on the island of Ireland, Mourne Alpacas offer visitors a unique opportunity to experience the CRIA WATCH (meeting the new Alpaca babies)  It's birthing season for our dozens of mums-to-be - come and meet the stunning babies in their nursery unit.

The most engaging experience for families and groups who want a full alpaca experience.  Experience the magic, the pronking and general Cria capers in our nursery paddocks - from a cria protective spectator distance.

As part of your CRIA Watch experience, you will learn about alpaca families, and all their unique behaviour before heading out to our nursery paddocks to watch our new curious and energetic arrivals, protected by their very proud mums.

All our experiences finish in the Meet 'n Greet paddock, with refreshments and time for even more fabulous pics.
