The Farm

Watertop Farm is a hill farm in the Glens of Antrim. It began when our grandfather Dan bought the farm in 1919. The name Watertop was chosen for the farm as a part of the Carey river rises as a fresh water spring nearby. The farm is a sheep farm, and we keep about 500 sheep, and 30 cows. In 1986 we opened our farm to the public and became the first open farm in Ireland.


We are situated on the Cushendall road (A2) halfway between Cushendun and Ballycastle. 

From Ballycastle:When coming from Ballycastle, turn left at the Margee bridge to join the Cushendall Road (A2). We are just over 5 miles from this point. Continue through the small village of Ballyvoy and follow the road as he rises up into the hills of Carey. We are just on the left before Ballypatrick forest, and have a sign 100m down the road.

The Farm

Pony trekking began a lot earlier in 1969 and was part of the Loughareema Trekking Center. This was the basis of our open farm, which has since grown into an activity based attraction, as opposed to the traditional zoo-like open farms. We have a range of activities on the farm. As we are located in the beautiful Glens of Antrim, we have several scenic walks around the farm and its surrounding area. A trip on the Paddiwagon will take you up into the hills of the farm giving you great views of the area, all the way down into Ballycastle and beyond.
