We have a family farm with large gardens and plenty of animals situated in the heart of the Munster countryside. The house was built in 1739 and stands next to the ruins of a fifteenth century monastery.
Today we have an organic kitchen garden, orchard and free range hens and ducks. We also have pedigree Hereford cattle and keep horses for riding and carriage driving.
We are situated in the beautiful province of Munster with all of it's history and heritage. Our family farm is only 20 minutes bus journey from a major Irish city for those who wish to explore the markets, festivals, traditional music venues, museums and art galleries on offer in the area. Adare village, the most visited village in Ireland, is only a short distance from the farm. We enjoy sharing the traditional farming skills and lifestyle with visitors and we are committed to the welfare and responsible custodianship of our land and animals and we like to share this ethos with all who come to stay and experience genuine Irish hospitality in our home.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Tasks will be mostly helping in the family kitchen garden and painting gates. But we are always happy for people to share any skills they have!
Workawayers will stay in the family home, a traditional stone built 4-storey farmhouse built in the 18th Century. Vistors are welcomed to eat with us as a family at Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. We pride ourselves on our home baking skills - breads, pies, cakes and also on fresh produce from the kitchen garden.
Shannon Airport is a 35 minute car journey from the farm. Adare village is close by. There are transport links to Limerick, Cork and Galway cities.
