Visitor Info

Tour description

The Standard Donkey Dreamland tour provides entry to the sanctuary and a 30 minute guided tour* by a Donkey Dreamland guide. Receive a personal introduction to the donkeys, hear their stories, and learn a few donkey facts along the way!

After the tour, guests are welcome to spend time enjoying the peace and tranquillity of Donkey Dreamland. A visit usually lasts between 60 and 90 minutes

*Depending on the group size

Please note: We are happy to receive any cash donations on the day or additional contributions via our “online donations” area; we thank you all for your generosity and kindness.

The €10 entry charge is a donation, not a fee. If you cannot afford the donation, please email us directly, and we will try our best to accommodate you.

All donations go towards the well-being of the donkeys and the running of Donkey Dreamland. No one at the sanctuary receives a wage, including the Donkey Dreamland Founder or volunteers; everyone works for free.

Donkey Dreamland costs around €4,500 a month to run, and we receive no funding whatsoever from either the Government or the local Council. Your donations are essential to keep the project running!

Here are a few examples of our costs:

€10 – can buy a donkey’s weekly medicine

€15 – feeds a donkey for a week

€20 – pays for a farrier to trim a donkey’s hooves

€30 – pays for fresh water for a month

€50 – buys five fence posts to help build a paddock

COVID-19 Message

Donkey Dreamland is open to the public

At Donkey Dreamland we work hard to create a safe environment for both visitors and volunteers and you may notice a few changes when you visit the rescue centre such as reduced numbers for tours and following safety requirements. You can book a tour online here or simply turn up, however those who have booked a tour online will take precedence and you may have to wait for the next available tour.

If you plan your visit, be sure to review the current government travel guidelines or restrictions.

Donkey Dreamland is currently open to visitors Saturday and Sunday 10am until 2pm but please visit our Facebook page for the latest information about opening times and special events.

COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that is believed to mainly spread from person-to-person contact. Donkey Dreamland is doing its part to mitigate transmission intensity, and we ask you, our visitors, to do the same and help us reduce the spread of COVID-19. You must follow all posted instructions while visiting Donkey Dreamland, including instructions about wearing face coverings and social distancing.
