Family Holidays on the Farm

A family holiday in an Irish Farmstay B&B is a great way for children to experience nature at first hand. Apart from being a wondrous experience for children (of all ages) it is a great opportunity to get up close and personal with nature, it’s the best kind of family holiday to have in Ireland.

As parents well know, once the little ones are entertained, even if it is only by the farm cats, dogs and chickens, all is well with the world. And while young children may well know where their milk, yogurt and cheese come from, how often do they actually get to feed the hens or gather their own eggs for breakfast.

Farmers put so much effort into producing the highest quality food for Irish tables, and after one visit to an Irish Farmstay B&B, this is abundantly clear.  Another novelty for city dwellers staying on a farm is having so much open space at their disposal, a fact most farming families seem to take for granted when their nearest neighbour could be miles away instead of just over the garden fence.

And while images of large homey kitchens with tables laden down with food might have been a rarity a few years ago, with many farmers wives having to rejoin the workforce, with the recession cutting deep into other sources of income, jam and bread making for local farmers markets have become very popular once again. Alongside more innovative ideas like foraging and sheepdogs trials which are taking off faster than Shep around the country....

The best time to go for the newborn, bottle fed experience is obviously spring, most Irish farmhouse bed & breakfasts stay open all year round but those that don’t will definitely be up and running for St Patrick’s Day (17th March) or Easter at the latest and on into May

Dairy farms will be more than happy to give you a guided tour of the milking process which still goes on twice a day, 365 days without fail, God Bless them....
