Michael gave us a lovely welcome and did everything he could for us. The fire was great and was a great stopover on our cycling trip

We enjoyed staying here very much. Michael was a great host, and the location is fun and great for kids -- especially with the play areas and farm animals. It would have blown my mind when I was young. The only potential issue that I see for some is that the fireplace is old and pretty smoky. People with smoke sensitivities (like asthma) are likely to have a problem, and it might be a bit cold in the winter to not use the fireplace. But excluding that issue, this is a very neat place to stay, and based on our experience, Michael couldn't be nicer. A very kid friendly place. Also, the farm is nicely out in the country, but the town of Templemore is only a short drive away. Templemore has plenty of shops and some good places to eat, like Murphy's pub. Overall, we would return.

Michael was sooo friendly, he was a great host, showed me everythingI need. I enjoyed my time in there. Quiet and peaceful. And Im in love with his dog. I will comeback again for sure later on. Thanks again Michael,

Fairy Fort Farm is a experience like no other - a true taste of traditional Irish life. Michael's kindness and hospitality are unparalleled. He shared his beautiful country, culture and community (and Pippy, who cared for us and showed us around the property - introducing us to Pablo and the gang). A truly magical and inspiring experience for the Soul. Thanks for the adventure, Michael!

Our stay at fairy fort farm was really nice! The property is beautiful and it's so nice to hang out with the animals. Michael is a very friendly host. He took us to a fun night at a local pub where everyone is singing and making music! It's a good place to be in the countryside in a place with character!

This was the nicest place and Michael is such a nice person - we felt so welcome here. We loved to see and pet the animals. Our house/apartment was lovely with everything we needed - the nice feature was the fireplace. In Tipperary there are a lot of things to do and to see - we went to Cahir, Rock of Cashel, the "Vee", climbed the Devils Bit and drove to Kilkenny. @Michael:we loved the jam sessions and the BBQ!!!
