Hosts like to grow their own crops, keep their own hens for eggs and use their own produce in food they prepare for guests. The full Irish breakfast is a tradition of Irish B&B, but menus are always varied. From pancakes to smoked salmon and scrambled eggs you’ll be spoilt for choice. Homemade scones, brown bread
and fruit preserves will delight your taste-buds.

Working Farm

Pull on a pair of wellingtons and enjoy a variety of farm activities from collecting eggs to feeding the farm animals. A farm holiday is the perfect way to get away from it all and get back to nature.

Authentic Irish Experience

Farms are run by Irish families who have been welcoming guests into their homes for many a year. Irish traditions are very important in the country areas of Ireland. Most families have members that sing, play an instrument or Irish dance, so don’t be surprised by an impromptu music night. If you choose to stay in a Gaeltacht region, the Irish language along with English will be used in the home.
