Country Homes and Farm Houses

There are hundreds of country homes and farm houses offering bed & breakfast on a daily or weekly basis with other meals often provided. This type of accommodation gives visitors the opportunity to share in the life of an Irish family in an urban or country setting. They may live in a Georgian residence, a modern bungalow or a traditional cottage. A farmhouse holiday again gives scope for meeting people and is especially suitable for children.

All homes and farmhouses that have been inspected and approved by Fáilte Ireland are listed in the official guide, available from the tourist office. In addition to this, the Town and Country Homes Association and Fáilte Tuaithe, the Irish Farmhouse Association, produce their own annual guides to their members’ houses. These are also available from Tourism Ireland in Britain and from tourist information offices throughout Ireland.
