Airfield is a unique city farm located in Dundrum, Dublin – a 15min drive from the capital and at the foothills of the Dublin Mountains. From 1894 until 1993 it was the family home and working farm of the enterprising and generous Overend sisters, Letitia and Naomi, who left Airfield in trust in 1994.  With a farm and dairy, food and ornamental gardens, café and heritage experience, Airfield offers visitors a wonderful opportunity to enjoy learn about food, farming, gardens, growing, history and heritage, in a natural and relaxed environment. Overends café is a perfect place to enjoy a taste of Airfield on a plate with the freshest of our seasonal vegetables, herbs, eggs, fruit, dairy produce and meat combined with food by suppliers.

Things to see

Woodlands and Farmyard

A true farming experience visitors can go and watch Airfield’s Jersey cows being milked daily at 10.30am and explore the dairy parlour to see it all being made. With a wide variety of farmyard animals including sheep, pigs, chickens and donkeys, the farm also has 50 laying hens (you can see them being collected daily at 10am), Rhode Island Red Hydbrids and rare and exotic birds that produce blue eggs – served in the Airfield restaurant.

Explore the 2,000 native tree woodland and 17th century hedgerows which grow crab apple, wild pear and cherry for the birds and wildlife – and don’t miss the wild pond which is home to dragonflies, frogs and ducks, too.

Gardens

There are three themed gardens at Airfield; the Ornamental Gardens which are landscaped with exotic flowers, a walled garden and a tea garden, too – the perfect place for a sunny afternoon. There’s also the Greenhouse Garden which is great for teaching the kids all about the different types of plants before exploring the New Food Garden to inspire home-grown food and gardening of fresh fruit and vegetables.

Overends café is open for evening meals Fri-Sat 6pm - 9pm.
