Alpacas are the new unicorns and we’ve just uncovered a magical getaway where you can spend the weekend staring at their lovely fuzzy faces.
Located about 80 minutes from Cork City, Waterfall Alpaca Farm in Drimoleague has a log cabin where guests can hang out with alpacas to their heart’s content for €75 a night.
And if that doesn’t send you home with a big goofy smile on your face then we give up.
The cottage is nestled among the rolling hills and mountains where the alpaca roam freely, joined by miniature donkeys, giant rabbits, Shetland ponies, sheep and hens.
The cabin sleeps four in one bedroom (it’s really a cosier version of camping so please do note that the loo is 30m from the cottage) with a small kitchen and living area.
If you don’t mind braving the cold, there’s a rock pool for swimming in and a waterfall to explore nearby, but the main attraction is taking the alpacas for a walk through the forest.
Visitors come from far and wide to accompany the curious creatures on their daily stroll in the great outdoors.
Guests are also welcome to lend a hand with farm chores so bring a pair of wellies if you fancy getting stuck in.
