Airfield Farm and Gardens Airfield is a unique city farm located in Dundrum, Dublin – at the foothills of South 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. Airfield now offers the visitor a 38 acre working farm, food and ornamental gardens, a café and heritage experience.
Airfield Farm and Dairy is most definitely the life blood of the estate and is stocked with the famous herd of Jersey cows as well as hens, pigs, sheep and donkeys. Daily milkings take place in the milking parlour alongside seasonal demonstration in cheese and butter making.
The Overend Family Home contains a wonderful new interactive Heritage Experience where the many stories about the benefactors, Letitia and Naomi Overend, and their family, are brought back to life through an extraordinary collection of photographs, letters, toys, clothing and books. A brand new display garage is a showcase for the Overend’s vintage cars which include Letitia’s 1927 Rolls Royce, Naomi’s Austin Tickford and Lily’s Peugot Quadrilette.
Ornamental Gardens - The refurbished walled garden, tea garden and greenhouse gardens retain all of the romance, elegance and charm of an 19th century gardens with a twist of farmstead planting in the sunken garden.
The New Kitchen Garden with its very own vineyard and espalier maze of Irish heritage apples is where they share their passion for sowing, growing and cooking local, seasonal home grown food.
