The Space

Gortbrack Farm, located 5 miles outside Tralee town was set up by Eileen Carroll and Ian mcGrigor in 1991. Back then it was a neglected 10 acre strip with most of the land run over with rushes. This is the probable origin of it’s name ‘gort’ meaning ‘field’ and ‘breac’ meaning ’speckled’. With many willing hands it has developed into a comprehensive certified organic smallholding. We are ideally located for walking groups to explore the nearby Dingle penninsula, Killarney National Parks and much more in the diverse landscape of the southwest of Ireland. We are off the beaten track, so if you are not into too much exertion Gortbrack Organic Farm offers a quiet relaxing holiday experience for families or individuals to come and enjoy. The area is very scenic with mountains stretching out into the Atlantic ocean (bringing it’s share of rain!). But no matter what the weather is like, there’s plenty to see and do, or just take your ease.

Guest Access

Cabins on Gortbrack Organic Farm opened in early 2009. Three timber frame cabins, run off solar panels and wood burning stoves. These cabins can be rented for the ideal secluded getaway, or for attending courses at Gortbrack. The cabins are built right in the heart of the farm so you can wake up every morning in the beautiful peace and tranquility of Gortbrack, take a wander on the bog and explore the Nature trail, gardens, polytunnels and visit the animals... Visit the Dingle peninsula and Killarney National Park . It is the ideal getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life.
