Our place is situated right along the Wild Atlantic Way and thus close to all sorts of attractions and activities...Whether you wanna head off after a hearty breakfast with homemade bread and free-range eggs and go ride the waves of the wild sea or swing yourself on the back of a horse, hike the green mountains or canoe the great lakes, go out for some action and do a bit of whitewater-rafting or cliff-jumping, or take it easy and follow the footsteps of famous Irish writers, poets and revolutionaries exploring the country's mysterious ancient and recent history - we've got you covered:)
we are looking forward to meeting you!

please note:
the ranch is surrounded by fields and forests and rough weather is unpredictable...suitable clothing is highly recommended:)

we respect and appreciate life in all its forms and we would love to inspire our guests to do the same:)

there is no check-out sleep as long as you need to recharge your batteries...

we love (URL HIDDEN) fact we have two female ones ourselves...we know that it is not always easy to find a good place to leave your fury friend when you are travelling so if you intend to bring a dog please read the following carefully!

out of respect to fellow guests we do not allow dogs in the rooms, tipis, cabin or the cookhouse...since there is horses, sheep and free running chickens around we want you to have your dog on the rope at all times when at the farm (no exceptions!)..we can prepare a little corner in the horse stables to leave your dog at night..please decide responsibly if your animal can be alone in the dark..if you have a cage to let them sleep in the car..even better..there is loads of endless beaches around where you can let them run free all day - dog's heaven so to say:)
we know that this is not ideal but it's what we can come up with until we get some kennels built..we still like to give people the opportunity to go explore this beautiful land with their four-legged companions:)..thanks for understanding..

please be aware that this is a farm which means there is loads of things to explore but also places that can be dangerous for kids left unsupervised..if you wanna come here, discover and teach your kids about animals, history, life and nature you are more than welcome here and we will try to provide to your every need..if however you see your trip here as a time-out from your offspring and a change to tire them out please consider staying at a place that has a fenced off bouncing castle:)

the fairies living on the premises are always delighted to fulfill your wishes if asked kindly

we don't believe in 24/7 WiFi access yet if you do need to check you e-mails or organise your trip, we are happy to help you out:)

Very welcoming hosts, had a lovely camp fire going for us when we got back from a days hillwalking. Incredibly chilled place, and other guests as friendly as the hosts. You get much more than a place to sleep, you get an experience you'll remember.

Lovely place to stay Loved having the cookhouse to relax in, hang out and to be able to prepare food Very clean and comfortable Spent one night in the house and 2nd night in the tipi which was fun but unfortunately we were too late to walk the farm or light the fire.

Airbnb not conventional with the nature all around us (horses, chicken, dogs, teepee), with fresh eggs and homemade bread in the morning. We spent an amazing night watching the stars shower around the fire camp with the other guests and our host. No WIFI but internet was still working. Lovely place to stay if you want to surf or visit the south of Donegal (Malin Beg beach, Slieve League, Assaranca falls, Glengesh Pass, Donegal Town, Adara...). A huge thank you to Kiwi and Paul for their kindness, and welcoming during our stay. Highly recommended!

We had a really lovely time staying with Paul & Kiwi. It was quiet and relaxing and you could come and go as you pleased. The late check out was very much appreciated . We really enjoyed the breakfast , the breakfast provisions and being able to have the use of the kitchen. Two lovely souls in a beautiful part of the country. Thank you for warm hospitality, wishing you both health and happiness

Kiwi and Paul are wonderful hosts: kind, communicative, and generous with their time. They were very helpful with information about the local area, and were especially welcoming to my 10-year-old son and my 80-year-old mother alike. In the morning we were greeted with fresh eggs and delicious homemade soda bread. My son and I stayed two days in the teepee while my mother stayed in the house. Then we joined her for four more days. The room was cozy, clean and comfortable. The teepee was fun and it was lovely to sleep in with the gentle pitter-patter of rain. The separate cook house made it easy to prepare meals on our own without feeling we were imposing on the private space of our hosts. It was well equipped with a long table that could accommodate many people. We enjoyed all of the animals that roam about the place. It was especially fun for my son. We all loved hearing Paul and Kiwi's stories of their own adventures, and felt blessed by their lovely kind ways. We are so happy we found this place and we recommend it highly.

It's a really cool farm to stay on. We got there really late and had a little trouble finding the place, but Paul drove to us in the town area so we could follow him to the farm. Kiwin and Paul are wonderful. Our son really enjoyed playing with all the animals and we had a great stay in this wonderful location. We hiked the area and also visited Paul's dad's farm down the road. Got to see sheep, horses, chickens, duck, a wonderful sheep dog (Ellie). They have a few different sites on the farm for the stay. You can pick any of them and they're wonderful. Kiwi and Paul made our trip wonderful. Thanks.

Idyllic setting in the hills of Donegal just a 15 minute drive from Bubdoran and a short walk into the local town. A beautiful house and grounds full of animals and wildlife overlooking a lake. There are wonderful windy roads in the area which makes for great driving and loads of places to explore and got lost in the beauty as you meander through the lanes which border Northern Ireland. There are many hidden gems to the wild Atlantic way along the drive towards Donegal Town just ten minutes away and great nightlife just fifteen minutes the other side in Bundoran. We stayed in the Tipi and it was a magical experience waking up to the sounds of nature and animals rustling around. The Tipis themselves were spacious and very well kept. Highly recommended experience as it's one we'll never forget. Kiwi, Paul and Terri were wonderful hosts making sure we had everything we need and took the time out to talk to us about our stay. Paul as well was lovely as he helped us navigate our trip giving us great advice on where to visit to get the most out of our stay. Some of the nicest people you'd ever meet. Can't wait to visit again. 5 stars.
