Crann Óg Eco Farm is well situated for excursions to the Burren National Park, the Cliffs of Moher, the Wild Atlantic Way, Coole Park, Kilmacduagh Monastery and Thoor Ballyle.
Crann Óg Eco Farm is nestled between two native Irish woodlands 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.
You can get here by public transport (BusEireann #51 from Galway or Limerick/Ennis to Gort) and taxi. But it is advisable to have your own car or bike for exploring the greater area. Safe, onsite parking available.
