The caravan sleeps 3. It has a lovely kitchen area with a gas stove and lots of storage space, a very comfortable double bed and two bunk beds. It is a truly gorgeous retreat with lovely rich wood panelling throughout.
The bell tents comfortably sleep 4 with lots of space left over for hanging out under cover.

Interaction with Guests
We don't live on the farm, but 15 minutes away the other side of Carron village. We are always here to greet our guests and show them around the caravan and bathroom and explain about the area. Chris comes to the farm daily to work and if our guests need any help with anything we are very happy to help!
Other Things to Note
Minimum stay 2 nights
Please check in by 6pm. We don't have any 'house rules' as such! As we are a working organic farm we ask that our guests respect the land, animals and environment: If you walk through a closed gate, please close it after you. Please don't litter and no burning plastic!
The Burren is a magical place, and staying at Julia and Chris's caravan really gives you the chance to experience it to the full. Chris and Julia gave us some great advice on things to do/see in the area and I love the personal touches that they have given to the caravan and the area around it.
A truly great experience all round. We hope to be back one day.
Lovely secluded spot, the caravan is just beautiful and the surrounding area is unspoilt and amazing. A wonderful place to go to escape from it all.
The owners have added lots of little touches (fire pit, candles, torches, rain ponchos, books, etc.) that all add up to make this a really special place to stay.
One of my favourite ever places to stay.
Staying in Chris and Julia's camper was such a wonderful experience! They were both so welcoming and friendly, and were so kind to show us around and even left food for us in the camper! The farm is beautiful and we had a great time hiking and exploring. Julia invited us to have drinks with her and some friends at the local pub which was very fun. Staying on Julia and Chris's farm was very relaxing and definitely a highlight of our trip.
Perfect example why I'm immediatly fan of AirBnB. A place like this you'ld never find on your own. The directions are right on the money. So completly surrounded by nothing else than beauty of Irish nature, silence and pure campfeelings. Go back to basic, but do it in a cute, cosy, retro kind of way. And be assured that a welcome start is taken care of. Julia and her son Freddy were very helpfull and kind and the first supply of food and drinks was more than sufficient. The sky full of stars to sleep under was a perfect dessert every day. And as a final tip, the Perfumery is a must-visit.
Dans notre périple Irlandais, cette pause camping bohème nous a beaucoup plu. Les enfants ont revécu leur période scout, préparant le feu tous les jours, observant la nature. L'accueil en famille fut très sympa.
Merci à tous les 3
Dear Julia and Chris,
What a great place you have! I already put it in your personal book: the most romantic bedroom ever. Everything was really perfectly clean, nice atmosphere completed via the candles, tablecoverings, neatly white bedlinnen.
Once you've reached the place it's easy to find it again!
The extra tent with a doublebed for parents is a must! More space, especially when it rains convenient.
The kids loved to play football in their own yard and slept perfect in their 'table-bed'.
Very clean shower/bathroom and a lot of cuttlery etc., makes the stay real easy.
Enjoy the sky full of stars in the middle of knowwhere!

What a wonderful, alternative way to spend the weekend in the Burren! The caravan was brilliant- So cosy, compact and uber retro!! Julia and Chris were wonderful hosts, ensuring we had organic eggs, fresh coffee and homemade jam for breakfast! The site itself is so picturesque and we being city slickers who are obsessed with our iPhones,
never slept better in such peaceful surroundings!! No distractions from the outside world- bliss!!
All you need are flip flops, wellies (let's face it, it's Ireland) and a hoodie! Don't worry, there is also a great shower with towels and toiletries from the local perfumery! Amazing!
We were sad to leave but can't wait to return again next summer!
You should do it!! It will make you laugh and smile lots!!
