Josef and Helga are lovely people who will make you feel most welcome, at ease and comfortable in their home - they really care, and it shows. I slept like a log, and in the morning enjoyed a very tasty breakfast that included locally produced honey, and the last of Josef's own-grown tomatoes in my "full Irish" breakfast. Though it was the end of October, it was a beautiful day and Josef showed me around their small farm, including the cabin that they also rent out, which has a small kitchen, and (not mentioned in the listing) an optional (and odour free) composting toilet available behind it - as an alternative to, or in addition to, the more normal facilities available in the house. I left feeling like I'd visited (new) "old friends", and I'll be going back to stay with them again!

I loved staying at Josephs ! When I arrived, I was welcomed into the house. They made me tea and offered me cake and yogurt and cream. I was tired and wanted to go to bed, but they were so interesting I made some energy to stay up and talk to them over tea in front of the wood burning stove. A very lovely and interesting couple ! I have found my new Galway home for my visits there. I was leaving at 6 a.m. so did not want breakfast, but they boiled me 2 hard boiled eggs from their own hens the night before so I could take them with me for my lunch. So sweet.

Josef and Helga are fantastic hosts with a beautiful home. They did everything they could to make me feel welcome. I felt totally at home and part of the family. Josef goes to great lengths to provide a delicious and authentic breakfast with including homemade jam and local honey. Next time I will definitely give the sauna a go! A peaceful experience indeed.

Can't recommend highly enough! I felt very loved, staying with Josef and Helga. Beautiful people The highlight of my trip to Ireland!- with the exception perhaps of the Cliffs of Moher, which I did in an easy day trip from there. I also did a day trip to Connemara. Josef is a born host. Breakfast is amazing. Garden is idyllic. House is so homely.

Josef and Helga are wonderful hosts and did everything possible to make us feel welcome and enjoy our stay. They made us, including our 3yr old, feel right at home. Josef had great advice and information on sightseeing ideas and the breakfast he made was great. The location is secluded and peaceful, great for a relaxing getaway. We enjoyed walking around the farm and seeing all the animals and activities.

25 years ago my wife and myself emigrated from Switzerland to Ireland. At present I'm looking after a small organic farm with 2 suckler cows with calves and some hens and turkeys. We also have an extensive garden with a wide variety of vegetables and fruits.
When our two children decided to leave the nest, we thought we like to share our house with other people who are interested in nature, peace, quietness and really good food. We're always interested to learn to know new people, their thoughts, ideas and dreams.
