Beautiful farm with very accommodating owners

  • 4 of 5

I recently visited Ireland with my wife and 2 children (6 and 8). We decided to stay at the Cahregal farmhouse for 3 nights of our trip. The owners are both very nice and gave us a tour of the farm, which my kids loved. The kids fed the hens, watched a horse with a swollen knee be attended to, and helped herd the cows into an adjoining field. My children also adored Buttons, the owners' small dog.

The self catering house we stayed in was very spacious and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped. There is a EuroSpar supermarket about a 5 minute drive in Newmarket on Fergus, which we used to pick up some of the basics. The location is convenient to Bunratty Castle, the Cliffs of Moher, as well as the Burren.

Just beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Cahegral Farmhouse is a delightful place to stay. We were on a driving holiday in the UK & Ireland and stayed here for 4 nights. We were 6 adults (two families). Each of the 4 bedrooms at the farmhouse are large and well appointed. The kitchen and living areas are modern and well equipped.

The property owners, Noreen and Michael were wonderful hosts. Noreen baked bread, scones and on the last night a lovely Apple Pie. Michael took my daughter for a great horse ride through the paddocks around the sheep and cows.

We used this accommodation to make day trips to the west and south west of Ireland. It is close to the motorway and within a mile or so of the village where we were able to buy essentials.

Thanks you Noreen, Michael and son James. We definitely recommend the property to anyone looking for a quality and welcoming experience. We would have liked to have stayed longer.

Wonderful property and Wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

Noreen and Michael were amazing hosts. They greeted us with open arms and warm bread and fresh scones! Michael gave us an amazing tour of the farm while entertaining us with wonderful stories of his youth. We even almost got to see the birth of a calf! We were treated as family. The self catering cottage was comfortable and perfect for our needs. It was situated perfectly for sightseeing Bunratty, Cliffs of Moher, The Burren and music in Doolin. If ever in the area again we will definitely return to Cahergal Farmhouse.

Charming, Spacious Farm House

  • 4 of 5

My three friends and I had a great time Cahergal Farmhouse! Noreen and Michael are lovely people and welcomed us to their home with fresh scones and bread! They gave us some fresh eggs from their hens and we even got a personalized tour of the farm. Good location for visiting Bunratty Castle and Folk Park, the Cliffs of Moher, and Lough Gur. I subtracted one star because we had an issue with the heating system (which unfortunately happened over the weekend so they couldn't get someone in to fix it until Monday), but Noreen and Michael worked hard to make sure we had enough wood and coal for the stove until the problem was fixed.

Time beautifully spent on Cahergal Farm!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the most enjoyable time possible during our stay at Cahergal Farm. Noreen and Michael were incredible hosts as we felt part of their extended family while there. The quite and spacious farmhouse was perfect accommodations for me and my family (5 in total). Words can hardly express my reflection of gratitude for our time spent there. Time slows down and the pace allows for a spaciousness of thought, reflection and celebration of life. As the honored Celtic philosopher poet John O'Donahue (from The Burren region, not far away) puts it "you must hold something beautiful in your heart, for the times when life calls you to a new threshold." One beautiful place that I hold is the lush lands, fertile meadows and open hearts of Cahergal Farm. Thank you to Noreen and Michael for opening your home and your land up to our family.
