    We are a small farm in the beautiful West of Ireland. We have 6 horses (including a 2wk old foal) currently on the farm that are all out at grazing. We grow lots of herbs, cut our own hay and run workshops here periodically.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    If you wish to see the sights you will need a car. We do have a bicycle but that will only take you so far! There are mountains to climb with an empty beach 30 mins away. We have serious surfing waves around 40 mins away at Strandhill.
