Get back to nature!

Feed the hens on an Irish Farmhouse holidayAn Irish farmhouse holiday is the perfect way to get up close and personal with nature itself. Farmstay bed and breakfasts are situated on working farms where you can get involved with the day to day workings, under the supervision of the farming host. You can watch the milking process, feed the hens, collect the eggs or see for yourself how the farmer’s sheepdog does a marvellous job of rounding up the sheep from the various fields that surrounds the farm. There’s a petting area where you can meet and pet the farm animals and depending on the time of year, be there to welcome a new arrival.

Lots to learn

Farmhouse hosts are excellent cooks and bakersAs well as being a fun holiday with lots to see and do, it can also be educational for children. They can learn where the food that they eat comes from and the process that’s involved in getting the produce grown, sold and into the shops. Farmstay hosts are also fantastic cooks and like to use the produce that they grow as much as possible in their cooking and baking. You can enjoy a cooking demonstration, if requested, and see how your host prepares the bread and home-baked treats for the day ahead. Depending on the time of year, you may be able to see the jam making process.

Scenic countryside locations
