WELCOME TO MOURNE ALPACAS

Nestled at the foot of Slieve Croob, we have a beautiful large pedigree Alpaca herd, with prize winning US and Australian bloodlines and outstanding genetics in our breeding females and superb studs.

MOURNE ALPACAS is a family handled herd. We are obsessed with alpacas since 2001 and continue to learn and improve our bloodlines and knowledge every day, being fascinated with the whole concept of Field to Fashion, sprinkled with fact-based learning.

Come and visit us, meet our family who have the privilege of owning and managing a fabulous very large all-pedigree herd. We have 4 children, who have grown up with alpacas as playmates, and who are all hands on with the husbandry and halter training of all of our alpacas.

Here at Mourne Alpacas, we have every colour of alpaca recognised in the official colour chart, from dazzling whites through fawns, browns, rose and all shades of grey to jet and blue-black stunning girls and boys, with amazing crimp and very fine micron counts.

Our herd owner, Dr Michelle Dunniece is a British Alpaca Society accredited trainer, and we offer certified training courses on our farm and our Mourne Alpacas webinar series™ on a regular basis.

So Why Do We Own Alpacas?

For so many very simple reasons: The alpacas slow us down and point the way to simple things that make us smile. They are gentle with our children. They live with us in harmony. Once in a while we are asked by one of our females to help her give birth and maybe nurse the cria for a few days until Mother Nature brings them both together, starting life’s cycle over again. We really can’t imagine a better way to spend our time as a family

If you don’t own an alpaca, ask the question, “Why?” from someone who does. When you bring your first alpacas home you’ll have your own reasons for caring for them which will add to the magic that alpacas create, that we enjoy every day here at Mourne Alpacas – 4 children,  alpacas, all living together and sharing a magical space.
