Our sanctuary in Liscarroll is a tranquil place, perfect for quiet reflection and contemplation. The serene environment here enables you to appreciate the beauty of life.
We offer several ways for you to pay tribute to the life of someone special and in doing so make a lasting difference to the lives of donkeys. When you support the charity that your loved one treasured, you can keep their memory alive here at The Donkey Sanctuary.
The Open Farm is open all year round except Christmas Day. You are welcome to visit our donkeys and your memory tree or plaque at any time of the year. As the season's change, a rich tapestry of colour unfolds at our sanctuary. Spring blossoms, summer leaves and, rich reds and golds of autumn alongside the tranquillity of this special place combine to make this the ideal spot to remember your loved one.
Memorial Trees - €600
Our memory trees are carefully situated around our beautiful walkways alongside fields full of donkeys. Watch your chosen tree grow and flourish through the seasons. We have a variety of trees to choose from. Each tree is marked with a plaque engraved with your own chosen message and dedicated to the memory of your loved one.
If you are supporting us from afar then we will be happy to send you pictures of your memory tree planted here in Liscarroll and the plaque with your own chosen, engraved message.
Memory Plaques - €300
A memory plaque is another way to commemorate your loved one. The eloquent plaques are displayed at special places around our sanctuary.
Choose your own message (maximum 15 words). When the plaque is placed we will send you a photograph of its location here at The Donkey Sanctuary.
Book of Remembrance - €50
On permanent display in the heart of The Donkey Sanctuary, our Book of Remembrance provides a simple, touching tribute to someone special. You can dedicate a page to a loved one by recording your own personal memorial message and we will send you a quality copy as a keepsake.
