Family Attractions

Greenane Maze

 

Greenan Farm Museum and Maze

Situated 3 km from Macreddin Rock B&B the Farm Museum has a fine collection of exhibits going back over 200 years, to a time when traditional hill farming used only the horse. The maze was planted in 1988 and a stream flows through it to a pond in the circular centre. Trying to find this centre proves to be a fun adventure for all.
