CRIA WATCH 2023

Llama Icon

The most engaging experience for families and groups who want a full alpaca experience, but think that the trek might be unsuitable.

As the largest breeding farm for alpacas on the island of Ireland, Mourne Alpacas offer visitors an opportunity to experience the magic, the pronking and general cria capers in our nursery paddocks - from a safe protective spectator distance!!

A single ticket at booking accommodates a family of up to six, or a group of up to 6.

As part of your CRIA WATCH experience, you will learn about alpaca families, and all their unique behaviour before heading out to our nursery paddocks to watch our new curious and energetic arrivals, protected by their very proud mums.

Time to enjoy, spectate and fall in love with beautiful newborns and days/weeks old crias, before heading back to the Meet 'n Greet paddock for selfies with lots of farm inhabitants, finishing with a cuppa and a stroll through our alpaca store before ending your incredible magical CRIA WATCH experience. 

Remember - suitable footwear and clothing for field/paddock conditions - suncream and hats for the summer weather we all hope to get, coats and wellies for the days we are all too used to with damp conditions!

CRIA WATCH 2023 - unique to Mourne Alpacas here on our breeding farm!

TALK 'N TREK
Llama Icon

An introduction to alpacas and the fabulous farm trek.

When you arrive, enjoy a professional introduction to the life of alpacas on our farm, followed by a safety and prep briefing before you commence your trek on our farm with a stunning alpaca on a lead.

Your trek will flow through our farm, alongside and through paddocks with our herd all watching on, so you can play spot the colours, or count all the new born crias! We are based below Slieve Croob, so the scenery will compete with the cuteness of the alpacas all around you!

 

We are very happy for people to share the alpaca experience. Lots of combinations are provided when booking. You can add more adults and children as our family/group flexible booking option, where under 2 year olds are not counted as part of the costed party - we are very family friendly, just like our alpacas!

A maximum of two adults per alpaca, or two adults within a family booking is applied. Children must be 12 or over to lead an alpaca.

 

When you get back to the paddocks at our Alpaca Space, you can enjoy a complimentary tea or coffee as you linger in the Meet 'n Greet paddock for selfies and fun with lots of farm inhabitants, and also spend some time in our alpaca store where you can purchase mementos of your day, or some stunning alpaca scarves, Herdies, keepsakes, socks, yarn, patterns and lots more!

 

Not ready to leave? -  Simply choose the trek and picnic table combination for a saving on both experiences to make a real day of it all!

 

If your trek is the 10.30am, then your Picnic Table will be available for you AFTER your trek, from 12noon until 1.30pm.

If your trek is the 1.30pm trek, then your picnic table is available for you BEFORE your trek, 12 noon until 1.30pm.

Remember - suitable footwear and clothing for field/paddock conditions - suncream and hats for the summer weather we all hope to get, coats and wellies for the days we are all too used to with damp conditions!

Trek with one alpaca, in pastures with more than 100!

PICNIC TABLE
with Fleece Fur and Feathers!

Bring your own family or group picnic, book a table in our alpaca picnic pasture and we will add the tea, coffee and juice for children! Our accessible tables can accommodate up to 8 people - so pack lots for your picnic!

 

Enjoy your food at your own picnic table surrounded by alpacas, and see our hens and ducks and pygmy goats - then feed them too!

 

Our tables can be reserved for picnics for a session from 12noon until 1.30pm on available days, and many other times by request for a personalised experience.

 

Fully wheelchair accessible picnic tables and also accessible toilets, parking and picnic paddock pathways! We are passionate about alpacas and inclusion!

Our "Wheels and Wellies Wash"TM station means you don't have to worry about taking any of our pastures home with you!

Picnic tables can seat up to eight people.

 

Warm clothing and boots advised - we are at the foot of the Mourne Mountains!

Plenty of photo opportunities with our friendly alpacas.

This is NOT a field trekking experience and this IS fully wheelchair accessible including accessible tables. Trekking or the CRIA WATCH experiences can be booked either side of your picnic if you would love the all-alpaca experience for your fun day out!

Remember - suitable footwear and clothing for field/paddock conditions - suncream and hats for the summer weather we all hope to get, coats and wellies for the days we are all too used to with damp conditions!

What to expect and sensible TERMS AND CONDITIONS for everyone’s enjoyment!

 

 

Facilities

We have fully accessible beautiful bathroom facilities, and a kitchen area where our staff will be working to supply you with tea and coffee to go with your own picnic on site, or when you arrive back from your trek, thoroughly alpaca’d out!

We are fully wheelchair accessible throughout the main arrival parking, alpaca centre, shop, Lockdown Lake and our picnic pastures, where everyone can meet, greet, picnic with or enjoy some wellbeing sessions with our alpacas and other animals.

When your alpaca experience is coming to an end, we have the perfect accessible wheels ‘n wellies washpoint, so you don’t have to take muddy boots to your car – we really have thought of everything to make your experience perfect!

Our Alpaca Shop

We have a fabulous Alpaca Shop showcasing the best of fantastic alpaca products, created from our own herd, and also sourced from our social enterprise partners in Peru and Chile. You can head off home after your alpaca experience with alpaca socks, scarves, throws, a huge range of our Mourne alpacas yarns, patterns, unique bespoke knitted products, and a selection of keyrings, plush toys, craft products, alpaca cushions, cushion covers, stunning alpaca duvets for the very discerning sleeper and also beautiful children's sweaters and hoodies – so be sure to plan in some shopping time!

If you have members of your family who do not wish to do the talk ‘n trek or Cria Watch, and some who are not keen to walk that far, or through fields, then simply book a talk and picnic support ticket for the non trekkers, who can wait leisurely at the picnic pastures after the talk, and enjoy a cuppa while the rest of you trek! This is a support option, and not a Picnic Table ticket for the whole group, which would be an additional session booking! 

Contact us for any special requests regarding any member of your family or group who may require a support ticket booking remaining in the Meet 'n Greet pastures while the rest of your party are off on a farm trek or Cria Watch experience.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Our main alpaca trek route is through fields and pastures, and as such, is not suitable for wheelchair users or for prams. No one loses out, though, as our pastures surrounding the Alpaca Space are all accessible, and our picnic tables are all wheelchair user accessible too!

Set age for an alpaca trek walker with an alpaca is from age 12 upwards, although a younger child may accompany a trekking adult but not be leading an alpaca, and always under supervision on the trek. Younger children must be booked as part of the family / group ticket for 4 in the group, where under 2s are free and not counted in the total of 4 - ALL under 18s MUST be accompanied by an adult in any booking.

We are based in Northern Ireland – our weather is a mix of everything and what looks very sunny when you set out from home may be different by the time you reach our farm. Coats, wellies and/walking boots are definitely recommended so that you can forget about getting cold or muddy, and concentrate on meeting our fabulous alpacas. No flip flops, heeled footwear or bare feet allowed!

Suitable footwear and clothing for field/paddock conditions - suncream and hats for the summer weather we all hope to get, coats and wellies for the days we are all too used to with damp conditions!

We insist, no matter what experience you are booking with us, that any under 18 year olds will be accompanied by a supervising adult from the same family/booking group on the farm at all times.

Please arrive on time for your activity – especially in the case of our Talk ‘n Trek, we will not be able to hold up a  group if you are late, and late arrivals who miss their experience will not be entitled to a refund or a reschedule of your booking.

 

Appropriate behaviour in our animals homes!

When you visit our farm, you are guests in our animals home, and we ask for respect and tolerance to be exhibited at all times.

Alpacas are incredibly friendly and inquisitive animals, but everyone can get spooked sometimes! We ask that all children and adults act sensibly, and take personal responsibility to act within the safety guidelines that will be detailed at the start of your experience. Mourne Alpacas Ltd will not be responsible for any issue arising as a result of inappropriate or incorrect handling, actions or behaviour by visitors to our facilities. All visitors are asked to adhere to the proper implementation of the information given during the arrival behaviour and safety briefing. All children under the age of 18 remain the responsibility of their group related adults at all times. No standing, shouting or running behind alpacas or other animals, and no rough behaviour or volume will be tolerated.

We reserve the right to refuse entry to the farm, or to ask anyone considered to be acting inappropriately towards our animals, our guests and our farm personnel to leave immediately, with no refunds or re-bookings considered.

INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY

Mourne Alpacas reserves the right to make a judgement for everyone's enjoyment on the appropriate weather conditions in our pastures on the day of your booked experience.

Weather check is made at 8pm on the evening before any and all of our active experience days, and in the event that we decide that the weather will not make for a pleasant or safe experience for everyone, you will be contacted by WhatsApp or text in order to arrange a replacement date for your experience.
