We are a farming family of 5, in North Kilkenny only 20km from the beautiful medieval city of Kilkenny. We have cows , cattle and new born calves to be taken care of as well as 3 dogs and farm cats. Experience is not necessary but a willingness to learn and enjoy the ways of farming would be great. We have hosted many before and love helping to ensure that you can experience all of what Ireland has to offer.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We love encouraging visiting the medieval city of Kilkenny as well as further a field which we can help in planning. Dublin is an hour away and there are good bus service from the local small town of Castlecomer. We have hosted many from accross Europe so we love meeting new people and showing the best of Ireland.
