Pick Your Own Strawberries

The Village at Wheelock’s is one of the few fruit farms in Ireland where you can pick your own Strawberries. This practice is an activity which has died out over the years, so we are proud to keep the tradition alive. It is a fun experience for both children and grown-ups – and an added bonus of delicious treats to enjoy afterwards!

Choose a date and time slot that suits you through our online booking system below (the available dates will be highlighted in green If the date is fully booked, it will be marked in red). We can only take a maximum of 6 people in the group at one time to ensure your guide can give you their full attention and assistance throughout the experience. Larger groups can be catered to, please email us at wheelockfruits@gmail.com or give us a call on (053) 920 1900 with your query.

You will receive a confirmation email with all the booking information included. Please arrive 5 minutes before your time slot, as we will need to check you in.

Once you are checked in you will receive an empty punnett. Your guide will give you some information on the growing process that happens on the farm and they also will show you the correct technique for picking the strawberry. Strawberries are a delicate fruit that can bruise easily, so you should always be mindful when handling them.

The experience is €5 per person over 12. It takes about 20 minutes so there is plenty of time to take photos and enjoy the experience. When you are finished, we will weigh the strawberry punnet and you pay for what you have picked. The price is calculated at €13 per kg.

Wheelock’s is a family run business and we are delighted to open our doors for you and your family to experience it!
