Historic Tree Walk in Muckross
Trustees of Muckross House
The Schoolhouse, Muckross Traditional Farms, Co. Kerry
24 August, 1pm - 5pm
Farm and woodland walk, exploring the 378-year history of Ballykilcavan, our malting barley fields, our mature native woodlands and the old courtyard that will be the home of our new craft brewery.
A 5km walk around Ballykilcavan farm which will include a tour of the old stone farmyard and the surrounding fields and forestry. The woods are mainly mature native oak, ash and hazel and have been designated as a proposed NHA. They also contain a 19th-century lime kiln and Victorian folly. The courtyard dates to about 1780 and we are planning to convert it into an on-farm craft brewery, visitor centre and artisan food hub. Some rough terrain so bring walking boots and appropriate clothing.
