We welcome you to our comfortable rural farmhouse in the heart of Ireland, close to the River Shannon. If you are looking for a stay on a farm with authentic Irish hospitality, you have found the place. With beautiful views of North Tipperary and the Silvermines Hills, our home is located on the border of three counties, Tipperary, Offaly and Galway, and is an ideal base for exploring the Midlands and West.
We try to be as self-sufficient, and sustainable, as possible. We grow a lot of our own fruit and vegetables without using any herbicides or pesticides. We feel very proud if we can produce dinner from ingredients we have grown here on our smallholding. Sometimes though we do have to subsidise it with food from other sources - but again we will shop from local producers.
Your breakfast while you stay at Oldfarm will always consist of organic home produce - our own granola, fresh eggs from our hens, sausages and bacon - all of course, subject to availability - or should we say cooperation from the animals! Homemade organic bread, scones, jams and chutneys are also included. Breakfast is served between 8 - 10 am, and is always prepared to order.
We are based in quite a rural area so we offer the option of an evening meal, at an additional cost of €25.00 per person (2 courses - choose between a starter and main, or main and dessert). As we grow most of our own food you are guaranteed quality and deliciousness! Let us know if you would like to avail of this option. We are wine drinkers and offer a small selection of wine at cost price, or if you'd prefer to bring your own that's fine too!
We can also cater for vegetarians and Alfie does some pretty stunning vegetarian pizzas among other dishes.
Many of the traditional 'must see' spots are within an hour to an hour an half from us, so can be easily combined into a day trip. Places like Kilkenny City and all it has to offer is just an hour and 15 minutes away. The Rock of Cashel is an hour and half, and the Cliffs of Moher are also an hour and a half away. ...
