Our house is located in a quiet rural area 5 miles outside Gort. With us, you have plenty of space to relax: outside in the garden or in our cosy house. In the morning you can enjoy a generous breakfast with mainly organic products.
The house is in a very quiet and peaceful location. With the two bedrooms there is space for 4 people.There is great emphasis on nice organic fresh food; a lot of it is produced on the farm or fairly traded.
The guests have access to the whole house; there is a kitchen where tea or coffee can be prepared. There is a living room area and a tv/computer room with a woodburning stove. Free wifi is available is in the whole house and even outside in the garden. There is one bathroom that is shared and a separate toilet downstairs.
A really nice generous breakfast is served in the morning and included in the price. In the evening you can join the 3 course family meal for 10 Euros per person.(Please let us know by midday). Of course you can stay in the house the whole day (the weather is sometimes a bit unpredictable) or venture outside to discover many beautiful places nearby. There are a lot of maps available and any amount of tips and suggestions from Josef! In the evening you can make use of all the rooms and we might even share a glass of wine or a cup of tea with you!
For eating out we recommend our neighbour Miguel, the man from Barcelona, who will cook a gourgeous meal for you in his own house that is a leisurely 10 min walk away from us. You can make a reservation and also check out his website. In Gort, we recommend the Gallery Cafe for eating out.
There is no public transport to our house. We can collect you from Gort which is 5 miles away for a small contribution.
From Shannon or Dublin airport there are plenty bus services to Gort.
This was my second stay at the Peaceful Organic Farm. The place was warm and cozy the food good and Josef and Helga are great Host. For breakfast I had Josef's special healthy porridge, porridge with cinnamon and seeds, plus a selection of other goodies. The house is comfortable and clean as are the beds. There is plenty of hot water and the shower is new and works well. The house itself is spacious as are the rooms and the bathroom. Therapy just seems to happen there naturally - I came away relaxed and revived.
Thanks to both of you.
We spent a wonderful time in the wood house. We were there in winter and it was very warm and cosy. Also, we shared a lot with Josef and his wife. I really recommande you to go there. The house was very clean and well-coming. Thanks you both of you for the great time we had.
Meine Freundin und ich verbrachten eine Nacht in 'Josefs farm house'. Es liegt in einer sehr ruhigen und erholsamen Gegend, wo Füchse und Hasen einander gute Nacht sagen und man den Sternenhimmel bestaunen kann.
Das Haus ist sehr gemütlich und warm. An einem kalten Winterabend kann man entspannt neben dem Holzofen ein Buch lesen oder mit dem Patron über Gott und die Welt diskutieren.
Am Morgen wartet entweder ein traditionelles 'irish breakfast' oder ein 'continental breakfast' auf den hungrigen Gast. Wir können das irish breakfast herzlichst empfehlen!
Gerne wären wir noch einige Tage länger geblieben. Wir möchten uns noch einmal für die wunderbare Gastfreundschaft bedanken. Wir kommen gerne wieder! :)
We had an amazing stay with Josef and Helga. I was blown away by the farm and the incredible variety of fruit and vegetables Josef grows. The grounds are stunning and so peaceful and the house itself is cosy, authentic and has a lot of character. The house and garden were amazing as it is but Josef and Helga's hospitality raised the bar. They went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed. The breakfast was delicious and Josef even made vegan Swiss bread for me and had so many vegan breakfast options for me. They also recommended a lovely restaurant in Gort, the Gallery Cafe, which also catered for our vegan and vegetarian diets as well as offering to cook dinner for us himself for a great price. They even gave us some veggies and flowers from their garden when we were leaving. I can't wait to visit again, I'll definitely be back to stay in the future!
I feel very fortunate to have found such a place. Not only is the place organic, peaceful and beautiful but the hosts are generous, kind, interesting and funny, with a good knowledge of the area. The food is well worth the money. I had a three course meal perfectly cooked to a professional standard with the freshest of ingredients. The chicken was the best I have ever had, so succulent and tender. I also had the chance to try some things I haven’t eaten before. I felt nourished inside and outside during my stay with Josef and Helga, their totally holistic approach to hosting is a real treat.
The room I stayed in was warm, comfortable, practical and tastefully furnished and decorated. The bed was clean and comfortable and I slept well in the relaxed atmosphere I had encountered. The fresh flowers in my room also a treat for the senses to see and the room filled with their scent.
I would have loved to have delved into their extensive book collection and feel I could be happy there for months at a time. It is an ideal place to forget your worries and relax or be creative away from the distractions of daily life.
I was sad to leave, but took the coastal route back to Shannon with the help of Josef and Helga’s advice on directions. I felt nothing was too much trouble for them to assist. The day was glorious sunshine and the drive back very satisfying. I believe they would do the same for any guest and can more than adequately cater for vegetarian and vegan diets from their vast array of organically grown produce. I recommend without hesitation that you give them a visit. I’m very thankful I did and hope to return soon. Thank you very much Josef and Helga for a very enjoyable stay.
Josef and Helga were the most gorgeous hosts - we absolutely loved staying with them and wished it could be have been longer! They are wonderful company, very generous and their property is absolutely stunning. Our room was very comfortable and serene, the breakfast was delicious and we really enjoyed chatting and meandering through Josef's incredible garden. We would highly reccomend staying with them and would visit again gladly!
