The property and home are gorgeous! Lovely Irish farm house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Cahergal Farm House - everything in the home was in perfect order and very welcoming. Noreen made us scones for our arrival and then again a few days later - they were amazing! Noreen and Michael are great hosts - just like family - they were patient with the kids and let them interact and feed the horses, which the kids loved. Most of all they loved Buttons, the little dog! All in all this was a wonderful home to rent in the beautiful countryside! Would recommend to all!

Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

9 of us stayed here and it was absolutely wonderful. Our group ranged from ages 5-75 and everyone enjoyed the farm setting out in the country. Each morning we’d walk the long driveway and see the sheep, cows, chickens, donkey and horses. Noreen was the perfect host and checked on us once in awhile and would drop off a treat if she’d been baking. We were never bothered and felt like we had the farm to ourselves in this house tucked down the drive way. We really enjoyed our stay and will be back. Close to Shannon airport but never heard a plane. We used this house as a base camp to explore the west side of Ireland taking Day trips to the ring of Kerry and cliffs of Moher- all worth the travel. If you are ok with a two hour trip each way go explore the town of Dingle and the circle route of 559. It’s AWESOME!!! After full days of exploring, the farm was a welcomed site where we all had plenty of space and all the comforts we could want. Thank you Noreen and Michael for opening your home to us.

Great first visit to Ireland!

  • 5 of 5

Great home with a fabulous host. She took our kids running with the sheep and they loved it. Close to many places we wanted to go. Plenty big with lots of bathrooms. Very clean. She provided us with coffee, scones, bread the first day. One highlight of our trip that is very close to the farmhouse was the hawk walk at Dromoland Castle-don’t miss it!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The farm was absolutely beautiful! The house was magnificent! A perfect reflection of farm life in Ireland - fields of horses, sheep and cows literally outside your bedroom window!! We can’t forget about Buttons - the farm dog who joined us most evenings. Nice oasis to return to after our daily road trips- perfectly located for day trips. Would definitely stay here again!!!! Thank you Noreen and Michael!!

Absolutely LOVED Staying here!

  • 5 of 5

Noreen is the best hostess. The place was immaculate and had all the comforts of America. It was authentic Irish, quiet and warming. Noreen gave us great tips on places to travel and sightseeing which made our day trips enjoyable. The people in Newmarket on Fergus were genuinely suburb people who were friendly and enjoyed sharing with us the culture and their town. I highly recommend Cahergal Farmhouse and Newmarket on Fergus!

Perfect Home Base for a Family!

  • 5 of 5

The Cahergal Farmhouse was absolutely perfect for our family of 8 to travel around Ireland for two weeks. We were able to sleep comfortably, get showered and ready for the day quickly with 4 full bathrooms, and have a haven to rest and enjoy a home cooked meal in the beautiful kitchen. The laundry machines were a nice bonus! Noreen and Michael could not have been more welcoming and kind. Fresh scones and brown bread would appear on our counter like magic! The house is clean and spacious, and the farm is beautiful to walk around with the tour guide, Buttons! We will surely be back!
