Josef ja Helga ottivat meidät vastaan ystävällisesti taloonsa. Paikka sijaitsee maaseudulla ja oli erittäin rauhallinen ja hiljainen. Huone oli siisti, sänky oli hyvä nukkua ja untuvapeiton alla nukuimme makeasti. Josefin laittamana söimme viikon reissumme parhaan aamupalan! Tätä paikkaa voimme ehdottomasti suositella myös muille matkaajille.
Ich kann den Aufenthalt bei Josef nur empfehlen!!
Habe mich rundherum wohl gefühlt.
Das Haus liegt wunderschön, der Garten lädt zum Verweilen ein.
Wer schon immer Sehnsucht bekommen hat, wenn er an das Auenland und seine idyllischen Dörfer und Höfe denkt muss unbedingt eine Übernachtung bei Helga und Josef einplanen. Selten habe ich einen so schönen und stimmigen Garten gesehen, aus dem auch fast alle Zutaten für das hervorragende Abendessen und Frühstück stammen.
Auch das Zimmer ist spitze, das Bett sehr bequem und es ist genügend Platz vorhanden um all seine Sachen unterzubringen.
Unterhaltungen mit Josef und Helga bei einem Glas Wein sind interessant und inspirierend , die Zeit vergeht wie im Flug. Vor allem das machte den Aufenthalt für mich zu mehr als nur einer Übernachtungsmöglichkeit.
Ich kann eine Übernachtung bei Josef also uneingeschränkt empfehlen und sogar sagen, dass sie Pflicht bei allen ist, die auf Ihrem anstrengenden Trip durch Irland eine Oase der Ruhe suchen!
The b&b is deep in the countryside, which means not too easy to find, but it's worth it once you do! Joseph and his wife were wonderful hosts, very welcoming: we immediately felt at ease. The breakfast is wonderful, gave us plenty of energy for the approx. 1 hr drive to reach the cliffs of Moher. Recommended!
The stay at the farm cottage of josef and helga was pretty amazing. They are nice and interesting people who really care about their guests. The breakfast was the best we had in ireland, a fresh fruit salat, fresh baked scones and selig-made marmelade. Thank you for everything!!
Josef's B&B was my first experience with Airbnb and i could not have asked for better!! Josef was very welcoming et so was Helga!! The house and the land were beautiful and so peaceful! Everything was very clear as well. They were also very helpful with travel tips and places to go and roads to take!
I wish i could have stayed longer!!
I surely recommand it!!
Thank you Josef and Helga for those nice evening in your Company! :)
We had a delightful stay at Josef and Helga's! After the adventure of finding their home (following Helga's excellent directions, and introduction to the home, we were given homemade pastries and tea. Later in the evening we were shown around the farm, and returned to the house for wine and lovely conversation. In the morning we were served a superb full Irish breakfast with Helga's homemade bread and preserves. A top notch experience!!
Josef and Helga were amazing hosts. Very welcoming and friendly. Their organic farm is really nice and we really enjoyed the time we spent at their place. Communication was very good and finding the farm was fairly straight forward following the directions Josef gave us. The room was clean and the breakfast was very tasty. They also gave us a really good recommendation for a restaurant to go to in Gort for dinner. We hope to visit them again in the future.

About the Host, Josef
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.
