County Wicklow is well known for many things, its beautiful landscape, breathtaking views, mountain ranges just to name a few.
However, one niche aspect of Wicklow is a little less known – its wonderful alpacas that just about everyone wants to play with!
Alpacas are simply delightful, friendly, and curious animals, each with their own personality. Get up close to these beautiful animals, hear them hum to each other, feel how soft their fleece is and look into their big brown eyes.
You can even trek up the mountains with the alpacas and enjoy a nice glass of bubbly presecco with your new found friend.
K2 Alpacas in Newtownmountkennedy can make all of this, and much more, happen for you.
They also provide Alpacas for events and team training exercises.
K2 say – “For us, alpacas are not simply our job, they are our passion.
“We are just starting out on our Alpaca journey. We have researched the market thoroughly and are happy to share this information with anyone else starting out. We are working on creating 3 main value streams from alpacas; alpaca fibre, agri-tourism and breeding.
“Agri-tourism is especially important for us and the country as a whole. We feel it will be a major new attraction to both the local community and incoming tourists looking for a truly unique, fun and memorable experience.”
And, for the month of December only, you can find Alpacas at the Wicklow Christmas Market in Wicklow Town.
One thing is for certain – they are a hidden gem of the garden county.
Alpacas for everyone!
