Booking a stay in a farmhouse B&B is the perfect choice if you want to experience delicious meals and tasty home-baked treats. Farmhouse Bed and Breakfasts offer the best of traditional cuisine with menus using the finest of local and seasonal produce.
Many of our farmhouse B&Bs are working farms that produce a lot of what they use in their menus from the farm. Your palate will delight in the succulent flavours from the farm’s very own harvest. Start your day with eggs freshly-laid by the garden hens that will compliment your B&B hosts delicious homemade soda bread.
Full Irish Breakfast
There’s nothing quite like waking up to the smell of a traditional home-cooked breakfast. The full Irish is always on the menu when you choose a farmstay holiday. Bacon, eggs, sausage, tomatoes with black and white pudding accompanied with freshly made soda-bread, is the perfect start to any day. If you prefer something else, then there is always plenty to choose from on the varied breakfast menu. Many farms make their own jams that taste divine on homemade breads.
Farmhouse hosts are renowned for their baking skills and the aroma of home baking is certain to get your taste buds awakened. Freshly baked brown bread, soda bread and scones are customary treats and are most welcome after a busy day sightseeing. There’s nothing nicer than a warm buttered scone accompanied by a cup of tea or coffee. Your B&B host may even give you an impromptu cookery class and let you in on their secret recipes.
Take a farm tour
If you would like to learn a bit about farming life, your host will be delighted to take you on a tour of the farm where you will see animals such as sheep, cattle, horses and donkeys in their natural environment. B&B hosts know their area well, so if you are interested in visiting a farmer’s market or the hidden gems of their area, they will be able to advise you. So, if you would like a farmstay holiday that offers the best of traditional cuisine, look no further than a Farmhouse B&B.
