BALLYMURRIN QUAKER FARMSTEAD:  from 1668



2014

 
 

Set in a historic landscape of undulating contours, moods and hues, Ballymurrin Quaker Farmstead opens its doors to welcome visitors.


Uncover the stories of this farmstead; those who lived, died, were imprisoned & emigrated.  Visit the house, its meeting room, the forge.  Learn of the difficulties experienced in Wicklow by Quakers, whose daring, enlightened new beliefs recognised neither priest nor tithes. 


Come to visit, to learn more....




We welcome visits.  A call in advance will assist us to assess numbers to ensure we can provide a good experience.


We request visitors to supervise their children at all times, for the comfort of guests, for safety and to protect the historic features of the property.
