  • Our kids loved this cozy spot! We had the cabin to ourselves -- our family of five filled a bunk room, and since there was no one in the adjoining bunk room, we had the cozy common space to ourselves -- perfect for the rainy weather. We thought from the pictures that there might be more hiking or yoga available. That didn't turn out to be the case for us. The people we met were all friendly, but we never met Flor, and the pictures of hiking trails and yoga studio didn't turn out to be things we ever saw. However, the place had a lot of charm, and as it was rainy, we used it as a base for a lovely day trip into Galway. Just be sure you are ok with the idea of composting toilets and shared solar showers and common kitchen space before you book!

  • Our family of 5 thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the farm. The cabin was cozy - with bunk beds and all. While the compost toilet (& smell) took a little getting used to, the animals and grounds more than made up for the lack of running water toilets. We would definitely recommend a stay for anyone looking for a little down time in the country. Just make sure to pack your own travel towels as they are not provided. Other than that, a great time was had by all.

  • Flor picked us up from the bus station and upon arrival let us hop into a family game of volleyball. We enjoyed the fire at night and the built in bunk beds in the cozy cabin. Greatly enjoyed our stay!

  • I enjoyed the peaceful settings of this unique eco farm. The wooden long house is beautiful and simple, much like the rest of this tranquil place. The yoga class was also nice to go to. Highly recommend.

  • My two friends and I stayed at Flor's peaceful, beautiful farm near Gort. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend anyone looking for a unique Ireland experience. We woke up to rooster calls and birds in the morning and went to bed with picturesque views of the stars rid of any light pollution. We went on runs down through the country and walked into town where we saw new baby sheep, cattle and horses. It was wonderful! We stayed in a cute wood cabin in our own room with four bunk beds and shared the kitchen and living room with the four girls working on the farm through the woofing program. They were wonderful lighting fires and helping us with whatever we needed. Flor and his wife Marion were so nice and helpful. We changed our reservation and they were very understanding. We really enjoyed it. If you are planning on staying be sure to bring some food (there is a fridge and all cooking materials) and if you are planning on walking into the lovely town of Gort, it is (email hidden) walk. Enjoy your stay!

  • When I first found Crannong Eco Farm on Airbnb I didn't expect anything like the experience I ended up with - after arriving at the farm and being greeted by Marion we were shown to the longhouse, and honestly the pictures are beautiful but still couldn't do the place justice. Everything was made of wood and decorated with natural objects. There was a fire running in the stove, and two lovely dogs waiting for us by the door. We explored the farm, on which sheep, dogs, chickens, ducks and horses are kept, along with a large pond full of frogs. Behind the farm there are over 40 acres of land, and although we only walked through the land for an hour and half there were so many beautiful sights to see - there were hills for miles and so many interesting things to find in the forests. We discovered the Hogan (a wooden, circular building with a hole on the roof and a fire pit in the middle) that Flor built, me and my girlfriend spent both our evenings there, buildings fires, listening to music, just enjoying the peace and quiet that the farm offers. Throughout the whole trip the only sounds we ever heard were that of the birds and occasionally the animals, there were no cars or sounds of the city, the air was quiet and clean and it felt so healthy to breathe. We shared the long house with a family of five, and although that made seven of us in a small house there was nothing but love there - sharing the experience with strangers just enhances it, opposed to making it too crowded. We attended an intermediate yoga class with Marion on the second night which was interesting, educational and calming (even though I managed to pull a stomach muscle - but I think that was just me trying too hard..) She popped her head into the longhouse a few times a day to make sure we were okay and that we knew anything we needed to know about the day, herself and Flor were extremely pleasant hosts who left us to our own devices but were always around if we had any queries or wanted company. The longhouse is heated via a stove which was a new experience for me but the place was always warm, the toilets were compost toilets which were clean enough and although I was a bit scared (being a city girl and all) we managed fine. We brought all our own food but all the cooking utensils we needed were provided. All in all the experience was one I'll never forget, the people we met, the views we had, the different, interesting and exciting way of life was something I'd never come across before, but me and my girlfriend will be back as soon as possible, with friends to share the experience with!

  • Flor gave us a nice welcom and me and my daughter liked to stay here. It was a little advanture for my daughter and we had fun exploring the property. Here is a playground and horses and chickens and dugs and dogs and sheaps and ..... We got planty of options for things to do in the area as well. The accomodation is nice with lovely litle details and all the things you we needed in a selfcatering accomodation.
