Nothing’s more important than family, and at Abbeyfield Farm, they understand that more than most. Daragh and Alan O’Neill own and run the business alongside their wives, Grainne and Suzie. Originally the farm was overseen by Charlie and Mary O’Neill, their parents. Although Charlie is no longer with us, Mary still takes a keen interest in the farm, and with the next generation of O’Neills on the way, the family tradition will hopefully continue for years to come.
They’ve invested their lives into the business and that passion shows in everything they do. Down-to-earth and welcoming, their attitude is that a stranger is just a friend you haven’t met yet.
Our extensive shooting grounds have made us a popular choice among those looking for an escape from the city with a touch of class. Visitors can try their hand at clay pigeon shooting, archery and even target rifle shooting. You’ll soon find yourself caught up in some friendly competition with your friends or colleagues!
Abbeyfield’s shooting ranges offer a chance to have fun while you improve your aim with the support of our friendly coaches. We’ll teach you all you need to know about gun safety to get you hitting the target in no time. Once you’ve tasted how enjoyable this sport really is, you won’t want to stop.
Set in 240 acres of superb Kildare countryside, Abbeyfield boasts a range of quality facilities, including extensive equestrian amenities and a wide range of trekking trails.
Abbeyfield Farm also provides a home for horses and ponies, whose owners trust us to take care of their beloved animals as if they were our own.
Our popular Equestrian Centre offers daily ride-outs for all riders, regardless of ability. With over 30 horses for you to choose from, we have one for every type of rider. For the seasoned rider, challenge yourself with our 40-obstacle all-weather cross-country course, suitable for everyone from pre-novice to open standard horse enthusiasts. For a quieter or first timer rider, we have plenty of country treks offering an idyllic glimpse of the Kildare countryside.
We believe in encouraging a love of horses from an early age, which is why we offer pony camps for younger riders. It’s always great to see children and teens discovering the joy of horse-riding and learning more about how to work with these incredible animals.
Corporate groups come to Abbeyfield because we offer a range of compelling activities suitable for staff incentives, team building events, etc. Visiting overseas groups love the opportunity to sample authentic Irish country pursuits experiences. Our professional approach combines with our extensive experience and knowledge to offer exceptional events and we have several loyal corporate clients who come back time and time again.
Whether you want your team to relax and unwind in the magnificent Kildare countryside or you want to inspire them to greater heights, Abbeyfield Farm will ensure your company outing exceeds your expectations.
In addition, we’re becoming increasingly attractive to hen and stag groups, who want to enjoy the more refined outdoor sporting activities, horse trekking, archery and clay pigeon shooting. Those final few days before the Big Event are the perfect opportunity to spend time with friends, building closer bonds and creating happy memories you’ll look back on fondly for years to come.
We firmly believe in the principle of delivering a personalised service to everyone who visits Abbeyfield Farm. We welcome everyone from individuals and small groups to larger organisations looking for some time out with a difference.
Of course, we couldn’t manage the farm alone. We’ve been lucky enough to surround ourselves with a team of dedicated staff who care as much as we do about providing memorable, happy experiences to everyone who visits us.
While the business has changed and evolved over the years, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to delivering a first-class service to all our customers.
Whether you’re a horse lover with a passion for horses and horse riding, or a business looking for a team building experience with a difference, Abbeyfield Farm has everything you need.
So why not come and visit? A warm welcome awaits!
