Ireland U-Pick Farms and Orchards in 2019

Co. Down

Co. Dublin

Co. Offaly

  • Derryvilla Blueberry Farm - blueberries
    Portarlington, Ireland. Phone: 057 8642882. ALternate phone: 087 2466643. Email: [email protected]. Fresh blueberries available during August & September. Their website is down (as of July 2015), so that may not be a good sign.  Be sure to call before you go. Also, I've seen reports that say they only allow adults to pick, no children. Check with them, if you have children along.

Co. Tipperary

  • The Apple Farm - strawberries, apples
    Moorstown, Cahir, Co. Tipperary. Ireland. Phone: 353 (0)52 7441459. ALternate phone: 353 (0)86 6091998. Email: [email protected]. As well as apples, we grow pears, plums, sweet cherries, strawberries and raspberries. We also have a Camping and Caravan Park on the farm. And when we are not busy with this, you will find us making apple juice, and mixed juices from our other fruits; all done here on the farm. We even make a sparkling apple juice, and cider vinegar here too. We have a farm shop from which our produce is available all year round.  (ADDED: July 12, 2015, JBS)

Co. Wicklow

  • Conroy's Wicklow Raspberries - raspberries
    Rocky Valley Drive, Kilmacanogue, County Wicklow, Ireland. Phone: (01) 286 0618. Alternate phone: (086) 606 3339. Email: [email protected]. Open: July and August. At Conroy's we grow our raspberries in the open air where the fruit ripens in the natural sunshine, without the use of poly tunnels. We have chosen raspberry canes specially cultivated in Scotland for their hardiness and high quality yield. The hardiness of these Scottish varieties is of benefit in the Irish climate and the two we use are Glen Moy and Glen Ample. The Glen Moy fruits extra early so that we can expect to start picking our first raspberries by the end of June. The large fruits have an excellent flavour. Glen Ample is the best and heaviest cropping of the mid-season raspberries. These canes produce a full sweet raspberry that is ripe from the first week of July with generous crops running into early August.  (ADDED: July 12, 2015, JBS)
