  • Absolutely amazing place. Janny was great to communicate with, very patient in answering all the questions, and there was many of them, as I was representing 20 people!) She welcomed us when we arrived and show us around. The gardens are magical. You really need to go around the house and the gardens a few times to find the way around. It is so big that we never felt it was crowded. Both Janny and Fred were very friendly and responsive to requests. Fred gave us 2 extra portable bbqs (the brick one wasn't enough for 20 people). He also brought us an axe and a sew to cut the wood for the bone fire. He also was there on Saturday morning when we had some problems with the hot water. Together with one of our guys they fix the problem so we could enjoy the rest of our stay :)
    All the surrounding area is beautiful as well with plenty of options for walks ans cycling (cycling up the hills can be quite hard though). I have added some photos from our stay to my website, so check it out: http://(email hidden)/ciekawe/irlandia-co-cork-bantry-hagal-farm
    the guest house is maybe a little bit run down, but still lovely. Each room with the separate exits to the garden.
    Make sure you have something against these tiny midgets flies (not sure about the spelling) as there are plenty of them in the garden.
    I had a very very nice weekend and my friends too. I am sure I will get back there some day, probably for a bit longer than just a weekend:)

    And see what some of the people from my group say:

    Natalia: Fabulous place that charged us with positive energy, great memories and give us a smile from ear to ear;-) Thank you Janny and Fred!

    Rosie: Amazing unique place with great energy. The gardens are a wonder and I loved exploring them. Even with 20 of us there was lots of space. Already recommending it to friends and family.

    Radek: Free acupuncture provided by local midges was an unique experience. ;) No seriously, very nice place loved by all family.

  • Amazing place I've been in. Cosy rooms, fabulous kitchen and the sauna was a fantastic bonus. The owner is very welcoming! They even made homemade scones and jam for us on arrival- safe to say it was demolished! They were also very helpful- booked a taxi for us, recommended good pubs. (email hidden) to remember!

Hi Everyone, My name is Janny and I have lived in Ireland for over 30 years. When we arrived in Ireland 35 years ago,we bought an old farmhouse, and made a good attempt at living as self sufficient as possible. A rewarding experience for ourselves and our 4 kids! We also grew organic vegetables for the local market. I became involved in holistic therapies and had a Holistic therapy centre in Bantry town for years. Our slowly expanding farmhouse also became a place for people to receive treatments and book a room for the night to savor the experience! Our 'healing' farm was born! We loved having people around and giving them the opportunity to enjoy our lovely, relaxing space and gardens. Myself and my husband,now semi-retired!- try to create more time for ourselves, and travel as much as possible. We head off to Europe in our camper van at least once a year :). This is also the reason that we now rent out our treasured family home/ guest annex. We invite you to come stay in our 'rustic' old farmhouse that we renovated slowly and lovingly, a project that is never really finished, there's always something to do....but it is comfortable, warm and cosy, not flawless, it was never intended to be a 5 star hotel!! We give our guest 3 options: Rent the original farmhouse only (sleeps>10), rent the guest annex only (sleeps>8) or the whole place (sleeps>18). We now live on the grounds of the property. Normally we do not interfere a lot with guest, we really want to give you the privacy to make the place your own, your home, for the time you are there.We are always at hand though to help out as we live nearby! Looking forward to welcome you to the Hagal Farm experience!
