How can you not love donkeys? We spent the morning at the sanctuary and spoke with 2 of the people working there. I was blown away by how nice the facility was and how wonderful the service they provide.

I have visited the donkey sanctuary on a few occasions. They do great work and are very dedicated to their mission. It's well worthwhile going and you are doing your bit for society by doing so.

Hi, it's 29km if you go through Mallow and turn left for Liscarroll at the Hospital. When you come into Liscarroll turn right and it's about 400 from the village centre.
