Discover a world of seasonally-inspired food and fun at Airfield Estate in Dundrum, Dublin. This hidden gem is one of the best outdoor spots to spend a few hours with acres of green space, farm animals, beautiful gardens and woodlands to explore. Airfield Estate is Dublin's only 38-acre working farm which is open to the public all year round. On the estate you will find many attractions including the Overend family home, kitchen, gardens, vintage cars, farm and outdoor play areas. Make friends with the goats, pigs, hens and donkeys and, if you time it right, you’ll see them getting fed by the farm team.

Discover the estate’s heritage with our self guiding audio guides which are included with your admission ticket. Enjoy seasonal walking trails taking in the native woodland and bounty of wildlife on the estate. Take in the beautiful gardens, designed by head gardener Colm O’Driscoll and internationally renowned guest gardeners with century old redwoods and fruit trees. This is the perfect spot for a chat, a good book or a picnic. There are miles of tracks and paths to explore and play areas dotted all over the estate for kids up to 12 years old including an outdoor adventure playground with climbing frames, scramble nets, slides, swings, balance beams, tunnels and a zip wire for young thrill seekers. Enjoy a picnic or hot food from the on site food outlets on the picnic benches, or on the many grass lawns spread across the estate.
