Some neck: Wicklow Alpaca farm gets green light to build self–catering cottages
A hugely popular Wicklow start-up which pairs people with highly friendly and fluffy animals is looking to move its business to the next level.
K2 Alpaca Farm on Callowhill Upper at Newtownmountkennedy has been granted permission by Wicklow County Council to add self-catering accommodation to the farm allowing people more time with the charming Alpacas.
The local authority has given the Alpaca farm owner, Joe Phelan, permission to demolish an existing derelict farm outbuildings to create seven self-catering cottages.
The Alpaca farm and its famous Alpaca and Prosecco Trek is rated the ‘number one tour to take’ in Wicklow on Tripadvisor – this however only lasts one day. The cottages when built will give tourists more access to and time with the lovable South American animals.
