Next we visit one of the most engaging and interesting eco farms Rock farm at Slane castle. Located on Ireland’s eastern coast, within easy reach of Dublin and Belfast, the Boyne Valley boasts a breath-taking landscape through the rolling countryside and waterways of County Meath and County Louth. Known as the Ancient Capital of Ireland, the valley’s rich history reaches deep into the past as the renowned home of World Heritage listed, prehistoric passage tombs of Knowth, Newgrange and Dowth. For more than 300 years, the Boyne Valley has also been home to the Conyngham family who have created an indelible legacy on an exquisitely set 1500-acre estate, by the banks of the River Boyne, within the rural village of Slane. This is a unique opportunity to explore three diverse experiences, all connected by the Conynghams, within a true Irish castle estate
After a tour of the farm you’ll get a change to put your hands on some raw flour from the local mill to use and bake some bread which you’ll have with some hearty homemade soup or stew on the farm.
