The Sathya Sanctuary Trust for Nature is a charitable trust situated adjacent to the ancient neolithic site of Carrowkeel in the Bricklieve Mountains, two and a half miles above the village of Castlebaldwin. Set in 18 acres site in truly beautiful surroundings, the Sanctuary's aim is to provide refuge for sick, elderly, unwanted, abandoned or abused donkeys, once so much apart of the Irish heritage but now often forgotten and neglected in a world geared for profit and production. The Sanctuary is currently home to two dogs, cats, three sheep, 18 donkeys, 2 mules and several ponies but these numbers can fluctuate as donkeys and ponies are rescued and rehomed. Visitors and donations are always welcome but contact in advance is appreciated to make sure there is someone there to meet you. Waterproof footwear is advisable most times of the year. Open 1st April until 31st October, saturdays, sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays 10am until 4pm All other times by appointment
