With acres of green space, farm animals, beautiful plants and woodlands, Airfield offers you the perfect opportunity to explore and enjoy the great outdoors.

Located in Dundrum just 20 minutes from Dublin City Centre.

An 18th century working farm, gardens and 38 acre Estate, Airfield was left in trust to the people of Ireland by Letitia and Naomi Overend in 1974, trailblazing sisters who understood the importance of being self-sufficient and sustainable. Today you can enjoy our farm, gardens and heritage experience. Our daily activities include, egg collecting, Jersey Herd milking, calf feeding and donkey grooming. The farm at Airfield is a perfect working example of environmentally sustainable agriculture in Ireland. We encourage visitors to explore, experience farm life up close and even get hands-on.

To ensure every season is reflected in our estate, our gardens underwent a massive redesign project in 2014, with the help of renowned plantsman Jimi Blake and designers Lady Arabella Lennox Boyd and Dermot Foley. The colour and life you see in our gardens today are the result of the hard work and imagination of our Head Gardener Colm O’Driscoll and his team who have since put their stamp on the gardens as they continue to evolve.

There are many stories and original artefacts from our benefactors, Letitia and Naomi Overend, all of which can be discovered in a wonderful interactive Heritage Experience.
