To stay in a yurt is a unique experience, all the comforts of home in a natural structure. The yurt is traditionally used in Mongolia by nomadic people.

Crann Óg is nestled between two native Irish woodlands (SACs) and a stones throw from the mysterious Gort river, which disappears underground and re-appears seven times on it's way to Dunguaire Castle in Kinvarra. We are 9km from the town of Gort and a 45 minutes drive away from Galway city and the town of Ennis. Crann Óg is well situated for excursions to the Burren national park, the Cliffs of Moher, Coole Park, Kilmacduagh Monastery and Thoor Ballyle.
Waste - Creative ways to recycle are encouraged and demonstrated, we have systems in place for waste management.
Water use - we harvest rain water and have a supply of beautiful fresh clean well water and are mindful of how to make best use of this resource.
Noise - The natural silence that surrounds Crann Óg is a great resource to be enjoyed and respected by all so late nights are fine with respectful awareness of neighbours and other beings who also inhabit the area. Please don’t use any amplified music sources on the farm or in the woodlands.
Compost toilets - We have dry toilets with simple instructions for use.
The weather was gentle as was the welcome. The yurt was clean and comfy. Fell asleep after a long drive. Work to a warm stove, fresh water from the well and the sounds of a small holding waking up. My dog, Bob was in heaven, places to explore and new chums to make. My three day retreat was bliss. The whole place is "in flow" with nature. Left alone but engaged when need be the staff are helpful,friendly and interesting. I hope to go back.
We had a wonderful weekend in the Yurt! It was so peaceful and quiet! Everyone was extremely friendly, the yurt was surprisingly warm. Loved it and will definitely be back!
Staying in the yurt was a wonderful and unique experience. It was well designed, with all the simple comforts you needed (including wood box heater). The overall space at the Eco farm was well laid out and designed, perfect for couples or families to enjoy time away in the natural environment, away from technology and the hustle of the city.
Igazán gyönyörű helyen van ez a kis jurta. Valódi unicum a nomád élet szerelmeseinek. Fával fűthető kályha..., tűzrakó hely a szabadban és a teljesen felszerelt konyhában... , esővíz és forrás víz felhasználás... , játszótér a gyerekeknek... háziállatok a szabadban... Mindenhol tisztaság. A házigazda nagyon kedves és segítőkész. Igazi élmény volt.
(Gort városa 2 km-re található (bolt, patika, benzinkút, stb...)
Spending two nights in the yurt in Crann Og was like a dram come true. Everyone in the farm -including the dogs- welcomed us very warmly and Flor was very eager to tell us more about thr region. The yurt was very comfortable and cosy. Our only regret was that we didn't stay longer!
Really enjoyed our stay. Lovely place to bring children, and the yurt was great. Will recommend this place to friends and hope to return.
INCREDIBLE space perfect for relaxation and quiet. Really great to meet Flor, Merle and the others on the form. The yurt was beautifully crafted and kept us warm and cozy. Really impressive facilities beyond what was described- especially the compost. A must for nature lovers, hikers, and/or those who appreciate learning. Sad we missed the planned nature walk, but hope to return again soon. *only warning is to my wheelchair using friends that compost toilets are up about six stairs.
