My son asked me if there was anything special I wanted to do on this trip to Ireland. I said I wanted to do something a little less "touristy". So glad he found out about Ireland West Farmstays. It turned out to be the unexpected highlight of our Ireland trip. Eddie Dooney was the perfect host and guide for our day-long adventure that combined history, genealogy, folklore and a taste of working farm life. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a change of pace and a chance (if just for a day or two) to experience life in rural Ireland.

What a lovely place! Our whole family thoroughly enjoyed getting to spend time in the countryside of Ireland! The beautiful cottage we stayed in was cozy, comfortable, and absolutely perfect! Eddie Joe welcomed us all with a warm smile and gave us a fun tour of the farm and bog. It was very interesting! We had a lot of fun cutting the turf (even if we weren’t the best at it). Our family highly recommends staying here and meeting Eddie Joe. We all learned a lot about Irish culture and heritage and definitely left the farm feeling refreshed!

Our family visited this farm and the owner -Eddie Joe did a fabulous job.

We learned a great deal about the Irish farm life.

Well worth the visit. Highly recommended!

After traveling and seeing the Southwest of Ireland and all of the spectacular sights and natural wonders, the farm was a nice relaxing spot. The cottage is cosy but modern with all the comforts of a special guest house. Perfect for travel with my wife and 2 adult children with 3 bedrooms. Even had a laundry which my daughter took advantage of as she was heading off to the rest of Europe after our stay here. The hospitality was warm and genuine. I especially enjoyed the optional music night sitting around the peet fire and even taking a turn on the dance floor. Judy even convinced my son to get up and dance and he proved a natural. I would highly recommend this stay as it is nice to slow down and get a taste of Ireland today.

Thanks Eddy and Anne

We have stayed at Ireland West Farm Stay two different times on our vacations to Ireland. We have loved each time. The cottage is beautiful and was comfortable to stay in. Having a kitchen and being able to eat meals in the cottage is a great change from always eating out while on vacation. You also have access to do laundry, which is a great feature. Eddie Joe and family are the perfect hosts and enjoyed being able to get to know them. Take advantage of the local activities and do a music session at the cottage, take a farm/bog tour with Eddie Joe, do a hands on blacksmith demonstration or visit some of the local sites. You will not regret staying here, we look forward to coming back again sometime!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the beautiful cottage on the farm. Eddie Joe was a gracious and perfect host , making sure we were comfortable, lit the fireplace and sat with us for awhile telling us the history of the cottage, farm and land. We loved waking up to see the donkeys and ponies across the road waiting for us to come out to pet them. Eddie took us on a walking tour of his farm sharing more about the history and culture. Highly recommend this to anyone visiting Ireland!

We travelled as a family (college-age children) and really enjoyed the opportunity to stay in a traditional cottage (with many modern conveniences) on the farm. Although maintaining the peat fire in the hearth was challenging, it was very warm and relaxing as we played cribbage late into the evening after an awesome trad music session with some local musicians around the fireplace. (Thank you Jimmy, Judy, Corrina & Eddie.) Both the music and conversation were very enjoyable and a great experience for our family. Eddie Joe and his wife Ann were wonderful hosts. Eddie Joe provided us with some wet weather gear (rain coats & pants and boots), then gave us a tour of the farm and "put us to work" as we each took a turn out on the peat bog, trying to help replenish the peat supply by the hearth after enjoying the fire the night before. Farm fresh eggs and other breakfast foods along with some local cheese made for a great start to the day. Our family loved the chance to get a taste of life on the farm and a strong sense of so much local flavour from our time with the Dooney family on their farm. Would highly recommend to others.
