If you are looking for a unique and memorable experience in Galway, you might want to visit Curraghduff Farm Alpacas. This is a small family-run farm that offers a variety of alpaca experiences, such as alpaca walks, meet and greets, yoga and crafts. You can also stay overnight in one of their cosy glamping huts or tipis, and enjoy the stunning views of Lough Corrib and the Connemara Mountains.
Curraghduff Farm Alpacas is located in Glann, Oughterard, about a 30 minute drive from Galway City. The farm is home to the Newton family, who moved there in 2018 looking for a new adventure and a better lifestyle. They fell in love with alpacas and decided to share their passion with visitors. Alpacas are gentle and friendly animals, with individual personalities and a calming presence. They are also very photogenic and love to pose for selfies.
The farm offers different types of alpaca experiences, depending on your preference. You can book an alpaca walk, where you get to walk around the farm with your own alpaca on a lead. You can also book an alpaca meet and greet, where you get to feed and pet the alpacas, learn about their history and care, and take photos with them. If you are feeling more adventurous, you can try alpaca yoga, where you practice yoga in the field with the alpacas roaming around you. Or you can join an alpaca craft workshop, where you learn how to make felted products using alpaca wool.
If you want to extend your stay at the farm, you can book one of their glamping options. They have two shepherd huts and two tipis, each with a double bed, a wood-burning stove, a kitchenette and a private bathroom. The huts and tipis are decorated with rustic charm and have panoramic windows overlooking the lake and the mountains. You can also enjoy the outdoor fire pit, barbecue area and picnic tables.
Curraghduff Farm Alpacas is a perfect place to relax, reconnect with nature and have fun with these adorable creatures. You can book your alpaca experience online or by phone. The farm is open all year round, but it is advisable to book in advance as the spaces are limited. You can also follow them on social media to see more photos and videos of their alpacas.
