A farmstay B&B holiday is the perfect holiday for everyone, whether you are a couple, a group of friends or a family who wants to experience the great Irish outdoors and all it has to offer.
Get back to nature!
An 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
As 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
An important part of the farmstay holiday experience is the beautiful countryside and scenic locations that the farmhouses are located in. Take a guided tour of the farm and its land and enjoy the many leisurely walking trails close to your B&B. Your bed and breakfast will offer a home from home experience with comfortable bedrooms, an inviting sitting-room and of course, delicious home-cooking. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday and to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, then you will love a farmstay B&B holiday!
