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. This circular wooden structure is covered by waterproof canvas that creates a nice and cosy space inside. It was constructed using organic materials like hazel poles from our local woodlands, cotton canvas and woven rope.

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 staff is very nice and hospitable,and the yurt is comfortable to stay inside.If weather is good at night, you can see a lot of stars in the sky. Amazing experience to live in the yurt.
Una experiencia distinta de lo vivido hasta ahora.El Yurt es confortable y permite sentirte en plena naturaleza y disfrutar de una experiencia única.
El estar en un sitio sin uso de electricidad, wc de serrín y no agua corriente hacen reflexionar y ha sido una experiencia.
Flor es una persona muy amable y dispuesta a ayudar.
We had a good time on the ecofarm CrannOg. The yurt is very cosy and quite comfortable, and fitted the 4 of us (me, my husband and kids 11+14) nicely. We were not able to use the cooking facilities, because there happened to be a festival going on, but Flor and the people around were very friendly and welcoming, so we managed anyway. It was quite a different 'bed & breakfast' experience, but we really enjoyed the surroundings and were made to feel really welcome by our hosts.
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.
Spent three nights in the yurt, extremely cosy and a completely new experience. Upon arrival we were greeted by Flor and Merle, both of whom were very accommodating. Location was peaceful and very quiet, and the area was great for walking. Overall the trip was excellent and Id recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing, different holiday
Glamping this is not and all the better for it. This was a great experience for my family (kids 8+5) who really enjoyed the novelty of feeding ducks, feeding chickens, walking around sheep outside the yurt walking with horses, and the three dogs :)
The Yurt was clean in great condition and the stove was definitely needed. We arrived without wellies, and were blessed with good weather, I would bring them though if possible.
For those wanting a break from technology, I would highly recommend this as a lovely way to unwind.
Flor and his wife are lovely hosts and available for any questions.
