Belmullet Coastguard Station is set in the heart of the family farm. They run a spring calving suckler herd and from February on guests will see young calves in the fields around the station. From April on Charlie the bull can be seen in the fields, he is the biggest animal by far, weighing close to a ton, he is hard to miss!!
You can meet the 3 donkeys, Jack, Jill & Riley, they are quiet & friendly and love treats such as fruit & vegetables - an odd biscuit never hurt either!! Your day will start with a call from Rocky the rooster. He along with hens, ducks & some turkeys will never be too far from view and spend their days around the station. They will also provide you with some fresh eggs during your stay! The owners are happy to spend time with guests introducing them to the animals and explaining how the farm works.
