  • Description


    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.
