Fred and his family have a great set-up for short or week long stays (we were there 9 days). Very helpful to guests if we had a question but otherwise left us to come and go as we pleased.

Fred's working sheep farm is a perfect rural Irish getaway! We loved walking around the fields and woods saying hi to the sheep with Shep and Lucy the farm dogs. The kids even did a little herding and watched the shearing. Fred was always there to help us with anything we needed. It's a short drive to some beautiful central Ireland sites and the Fiddler's Green pub around the corner could be the friendliest in the country.

We enjoyed our stay so much! The barn was a wonderful home during the majority of our Ireland stay. We enjoyed our conversations with Fred and the bread that he left was fantastic. Everything was better then we hoped. A wonderful place to relax after a day of sightseeing.

I can't believe people actually live on such amazing property like this. Thank you for sharing. Every thing was as distributed with so much more. I wish I could add pictures. If you stay here and don't go for a walk in the forest you are missing out.

A real, working sheep farm in a beautiful country setting. Our kids (6 & 4) loved it. On a clear night it's also a magical place for star gazers. Fred & his family were very welcoming. Great to escape the hectic pace of the city. :)

We could not have chosen a more perfect place and location. We were greeted warmly and had delicious homemade bread waiting for us. We especially loved the heated floors! We tried to convince Lucy she needed to come to Canada with us but she said no. If you stay you'll see why Lucy doesn't want to leave. Fred, Absolutely perfect!
