Lynch’s Farmhouse – Eyrecourt, Galway

Josephine and her husband showed me true Irish hospitality. I was feeling a little isolated after a long journey. I was given tea with cream and jam filled pastries, sat by a warm fire, enjoyed the conversation. My room was lovely. Breakfast was delicious. I could see their family dairy farm from my window. If you are looking for a welcome, it’s here.    Marilyn Cawthon

Doonagore Farmhouse – Cliffs of Moher, Clare

We have stayed here on each of our trips to Ireland. It’s in a perfect location to Cliffs of Moher and the town of Doolin. The hosts go above and beyond to help during your stay. The views from the backyard are beautiful! Will be back on our next trip!   Aimee Houston

Garvey’s Farmhouse – Dingle, Kerry

Joan is a charming and dynamic host. We loved our stay at this working farm where a very nice dog greeted us. The view from our room on the sea in the distance (and on the Gaelic History Museum) was magnificent. The bedroom was comfortable, pleasant and charming. In addition, Joan offered us delicious breakfasts and gave us great tips to visit the area. Gite recommandé, propriétaires charmants et situation idéale.   Philippe Vuillerme

Hill View Farm – Cong Connemara, Mayo

Bridie was a wonderful host! Facilities were comfortable and nice. Her Irish breakfast was great, we could look out our window and see an open pasture of cows as the farm is a working one. Village of Cong which is just “a good stretch of the legs” is in fact within walking distance and this is that magical area of Ireland where the Quiet Man was filmed. Ryan’s Hotel has a good restaurant and you are within walking distance of the Museum commemorating the same film. Thanks Bridie

Grove Farm House – Inistioge, Kilkenny

We cannot thank Neelie and Pat enough for making our stay so enjoyable. Our accommodations were clean and comfortable. Our breakfast was fresh and amazing. We especially enjoyed sitting in the sunroom upon our return at the end of the day sharing a nightcap and pleasant conversation with them. I would also like to thank Pat for taking us out to see the cows and telling us about life on the farm. These are special memories we will never forget.

Grove Farmhouse guest review

Ard Na Greine – Clonakilty, Cork

Norma is a fantastic hostess. We arrived late due to flight delays. She welcomed us in at 2100, and immediately offered us tea and biscuits! She was always willing and able to help us plan our day trips from the farm with an experience that can only come from living here. The breakfasts are phenomenal, and yes, very day we set out with those precious scones in a baggie. If you leave her table hungry, it’s your fault! Her recommendations about the area were always on point for us. Our 4 nights at And Na Greine were the best of our week in Ireland. If you want traditional Irish hospitality, you’ll find it alive and well with Norma Walsh!  Phil Holt
