Stay on a Farm in Ireland

The phenomenon of agritourism - or agrotourism, or rural tourism, or farm stays, or guest ranches, or farmhouse B&Bs, or whatever you choose to call the chance to stay on a working farm - has been growing in Europe since the 1990s.
In Ireland, they are as simple as cottages or houses on rural property to a full blown working farm. These rural houses - typically on working farms - provide a great home base. They are an inexpensive yet culturally rich alternative to hotels on your Ireland trip.

Thatched cottage IrelandEven if you can't afford your own farmhouse in Ireland, staying on a working farm, or agriturism, gets you up close with the rural heart of Ireland. You don’t even have to milk the cow for cheese (although sometimes being a temporary farm hand for fun is an option for the kids). Dairy farms, barns, crop farms, horse stables or all options for your stay. Sometimes, just renting a cottage in a rural area where sheep wander past your window is enough to count.
Experience Irish farm life for a fraction the cost of a hotel. Our agriturism accommodation requires a weeks stay. (You'll find such enticing options as B&Bs on working farms for shorter stays on our Self Drive Ireland program). Plan your Ireland trip here.

 Quality shared family time A great choice for a multi-generational vacation. Over 60 percent of respondents in a recent survey say they sometimes or always travel as an extended family (with grandparents and/or grandchildren.)

Sometimes you get four-star luxury and satellite TV, and occasionally a simple cottage on a working farm. Most, though, are just what you'd expect: simple comforts, solid country furnishings, and rural tranquility. Mainly, the property owners live on-site and are farmers who derive the bulk of their income from agriculture, but enjoy meeting guests from far flung places. Some invite guests to dine with them, family-style, in the farmhouse. Each farm is different as is each family. In Ireland, you are guaranteed of a warm welcome, nonetheless.

Farmhouse vacation IrelandRelaxing ... Stress-free ... Safe... Affordable family travel packages. Walk to the local store, cook your own meals for that finicky eater, and have your own home away from home for a week or more.

Some farmers welcome the opportunity for you to offer a helping hand, and some do not. Help to collect the eggs in the morning, follow the sheep dogs as they round up the sheep, or lend a hand in milking a cow - it's all part of a farmhouse stay. Some farm homes also have horses for guests to ride.

This is an incredible and unique opportunity, to taste and feel the classic pleasures of the countryside, through the sights, sounds, and smells of the countryside, experience our natural heritage: the land.
