An organic farm in the unspoilt landscape of Donegal on the north western edge of the Blue Stack Mountains. We offer three self-contained holiday apartments and one en-suit room all with access to a beautiful airy courtyard area.

The space

This is a working farm set at the foot of the Blue Stack Mountains 2 miles away from Glenties. The apartments are part of the main farm house. Apartment 3 has a private entrance and direct access to a roofed courtyard area. It has one bedroom with a double bed. A single roll-out bed or a cot (free of charge) can be added on request. An open plan living and kitchen area gives you independence. The Kitchen includes an oven, cooker, fridge and a microwave can be added on request. Local produce and some organic dry goods are available on the farm, such as seasonal vegetables and meat (beef, deer).

Guest access

All apartments have access to a shared courtyard area with glass roof - a light and airy room where you can sit and relax or play table tennis and interact with the other guests.

Interaction with guests

Guests are welcome to book a homemade 3-course dinner (at an additional cost of 15 Euro p.P.) and breakfast (plus €7.50 p.P.).

Other things to note

'Eco' holiday apartments means:

Warm water is created for the underfloor heating and household use by a wood gasifier. Timber for this is sourced locally or from our own forests which are managed according to a so called permanent cover regime.

We are committed to use ecological cleaning and personal hygiene products and encourage our guests to do so. A waste sorting system is in place and encouraged.

Ingredients for our meals are as much as possible local and seasonal. Meals can be booked by our guests or organic produce ordered from our farm shop in Glenties.

Such a warm and welcoming place to stay in the beautiful countryside of County Donegal! Luzia was a gracious host and we really enjoyed meeting the family and hearing more about the farm. They even have a country store to get anything you might need during your stay (including some nice and affordable wine!). Thanks Luzia for the wonderful stay.

We arrived late in the evening as we drove up from Kenmare and our hosts were up waiting for us. We were warmly welcomed and the cot for Bub was already setup and ready to go, with delicious welcome muffins for a hungry dad after a long drive. Throughout the stay we felt at home and enjoyed delicious home cooked breakfasts with the smell of fresh baking ever present. We thoroughly enjoyed being part of the household but we also appreciated it was easy for us to unwind and relax in our warm apartment and feel a world away whenever we wanted. Our hosts were always at hand for any questions or information on the area and we enjoyed some lovely walks in this amazing bit of Ireland. We also loved the farm and our little one was in awe of the families of geese, ducks, cows, cats and the beautiful big dog Lucky! Thankyou so much for an incredible stay, I can highly recommend this accommodation deep in the heart of County Donegal for families, backpackers and couples looking to getaway from the hustle and bustle. We look forward to staying with you again and will highly recommend you to all our friends and family. Danke!!!

Luzia gave us a very warm welcome with freshly brewed coffee and homemade strudel, great start! Apartment was great, very clean and had everything we needed. It was a great location, allowed us to explore all around Donegal and the peninsula. Would definitely recommend it.

It was a very last minute booking for us so we didn't have time to give notice for dinner but in all the airbnb I have stayed in it had the best equipped kitchen to cook for ourselves. Luzia's attention to detail was fantastic and the accommodation was spotlessly clean and cozy. Luzia is a lovely lady and she made us feel very welcome. I'm sitting writing this right now tucking into some of the things we bought from her farm shop. Thanks for everything luzia. All the best for the future

Luzia's location is really lovely near the nice town of Glenties. Luzia and Thomas are so friendly and easy going and you can feel the passion they have for their work and land. The apartments are perfectly clean and perfectly furnished. Luzia cares of them in each detail and whatever you think you might need for living in the apartment... you'll find! We highly highly recommend this lovely place for people looking for quiet and regenerating time. The organic farm is also 15 minutes driving from a pretty beach (Narin) and one hour driving from wonderful Dunfanaghy.
