  • Well looked after animals and friendly staff. Kids and visiting tourists alike will really enjoy walking around. Cafe on site and reasonable price for admission.

  • Situated on the dual carriageway between Newtownards and Bangor, The Ark Open farm is open all year round and has plenty of animals for the young (and not so young!) to see. The staff are friendly and encourage Interaction with the animals - the creepy crawly loft was especially good. The site is a lot larger than it seems, behind all the animals stalls is a good size play area with a nice woodland walks. Can get muddy , so Wellington boots are advised for children! Overall a great time for everyone.
  • Great fun and lots of animals to look at. Food tasty too.
