About this listing
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. On the farm there is also a wooden cabin that sleeps three. 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.
Interaction with Guests
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!
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 is a smoke free house. No pets allowed.
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.
