Fun-filled family trip ideas from Cranfield Alpacas and Carlingford Lough Ferry to Slieve Foye Woods

Today’s family day of exploring takes you to meet the Cranfield Alpacas, then off to explore the beautiful Slieve Foye Woods.

Start the day with a beach trek with Cranfield Alpacas or a meet and mingle (indoors if it’s raining) with Coco and Hugo. Fun and laughs are guaranteed with the friendly alpacas, and so are plenty of photo opportunities! Did you know alpacas are relaxing, soothing animals making them good with those with special needs?

Once your camera roll is sufficiently full of selfies, head for the Carlingford ferry and cross the Lough to Greenore and see if you cant snap Finn the Dolphin as you cross!

On arrival, make your way towards the Cooley Mountains and over to Slieve Foye Woods. Take a leisurely stroll through the forest trails, telling the kids stories of Fionn Mac Cumhaill as you go, and getting your step count up too! It’s the perfect spot for a picnic so be sure and wrap up a few sandwiches before you leave and have a snack as you enjoy the stunning views of the surrounding coastline.

Then it’s back to the terminal at Greencastle for the ferry trip home.

Don’t forget, you can purchase your tickets for any sailing in advance on line at and avail of a 10% online discount, or you can purchase them onboard once you arrive.
