There is an authentic old Fairy Fort on the farm, and an ancient 'Swearing Stone', on which it's said Oisin lay his hand, on his return to the Land of Erin , after he had spent 400 years in Tir na nOg ( Land of Youth ) If you stand in the centre of the fairyfort and close your eyes, and listen with a loving peaceful heart, then you will hear the ceoil ( music ) of the Fairies.
The Cottages are situated on a farm about 1mile from the village of Borrisoleigh. Here you may buy petrol, hardware, food and drink. There are also restaurant and Fast Food outlets. You can buy fresh vegetables from Barbara on Friday mornings in the 'Square', in front of the beautiful Parish church. There is a garage and 3 Filling Stations.

Interaction with Guests

There is usually a great interaction with guests, who are welcomed and invited into Michaels house for copious cups of tea , sing songs, music etc.
There is often a Romancing the Fairies, when music and songs are performed to entertain the 'Little People' or Leprechauns !

The Neighborhood

Tranquility and peace are my friends here at FFF. the stream, waterfall, and new woodland is all such a pleasure and dare I say it, spiritual !

Getting around

Best to have a car, but many visitors have also enjoyed being driven around by Michael !

Other Things to Note

Great little spot for Art, Writing, or just doing nothing !

  • We had a wonderful time at the Fairy Fort Farm. The Ivy Cottage is very cozy and has everything you need, the location is perfect to truly disconnect from the chaos in the city and just admire nature and the beauty Ireland has to offer.
    Michael not only was the perfect host, his kindness and charm made the difference to our experience, he is now a good friend and we will definitely go coming back to the Fairy Fort Farm. Million Thanks for everything Michael!!!

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Michael's farm cottage. We were travelling with two small kids (7 and 10) and they absolutely loved the many many animals that make up the farm. The adults appreciated the warm welcome (literally, nice to have a cosy fire upon arrival!) and Michael was a generous, kind host. It was great to spend some time chatting with him, and great also to just be able to wander around the property and do our own thing too.
    The cottage is undeniably quirky, but for us it made the experience all that much more enjoyable. Thanks again, and highly recommend the cottage as a place to stay!

  • Charming! Beautiful Irish cottage. Mr. O'Donnell is a wonderful host. A beautiful fire in the fireplace greeted us. Great getaway.

  • We had a great time! Michael was warm with a great sense of humor. We had a flat tire and Michael came to our rescue, helping with calls and providing directions. Couldn't have asked for a better experience! Thank you Michael!
