Airfield Estate and Farm
Saturday Gardening Course
Airfield Estate’s gardening team have created a new gardening series which will run one Saturday each month from January to October 2018.
We are delighted to welcome you to Airfield Estate, Dundrum….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:
Originally owned by the Overend family, the heritage experience explains who they were, but more importantly what they were. Pioneering, adventurous, caring, driven, visionary and inspiring.
We’ve got chickens, goats, donkeys, Jersey cows, sheep and a beautiful Connemara Pony to name a few. The farm also produces meat, milk and eggs daily to Overends Restaurant.
Our gardens aim to be both pretty and productive throughout the year. They integrate areas for relaxation and recreation whilst also supplying Overends Restaurant with seasonal vegetables, herbs, fruit and flowers.
The Vintage Car Garage
Home to the Overends personal cars including Letitia’s 1927 Rolls Royce, Naomi’s prized Austin Tickford and their mum’s little Peugeot Quadrilette.
The adventure outdoor playground for 4-12 year old kids. We’ve a 27 metre zip wire, climbing structures, balance beams, slide and pendulum swing.
The Grey Barn
An interactive indoor/outdoor play space for 0-4 year old children.
During the redevelopment of Airfield Estate in 2013, we planted over 2,000 native varieties of trees in the woodland area.
Open daily and using much of the estate’s produce on the menu, this is a real field to fork food experience not to be missed.
Airfield Estate is a charitable organization established by Letitia and Naomi Overend in 1974. All of our activities are self-funded and we therefore rely fully on your support to ensure our unique amenity continues to live on as a resource for your enjoyment and that of future generations.
Open daily from 9.30am to 5pm. (Late admission in the summer months)
