I intend to visit Ireland. My interest are short countryside walks, possibly on flat terrain, accomodation on a working farm, with poultry running into my bedroom !!
Can anyone suggest the ideal location ??

Hello Malti

I cant suggest an actual location, but i would suggest that u choose a location, on the coast of ireland, rather than in the midlands.
I am from Ireland. The midlands are where my parents live, and it is quite boring there. But i think most places around the coast are beautiful. U could choose a farmhous bed and breakfast, or guesthouse, on the coast.

The tourist organisation, in Ireland is called Bord Failte. Maybe a search on their web site would give u information, about farmhouses, to stay at.

Hey there,

Suggest you check out this site:

www.wwoof.org

I have never "wwoofed" before but this seems to be an interesting way to travel.
By the way, does anyone here have any experience of wwoofing? Any anectodes?

The Fermanagh Lakelands or The Causeway Coast (both in Northern Ireland) are two areas I would highly recommend! The Northern Ireland tourist board website is http://www.discovernorthernireland.com/ you should find a wealth of information there!

I was also going to suggest wwoofing, as I will be doing it in Ireland in January. I have no anticdotes as of yet, I begin my first woofing in France next week. As for Ireland I know that there are many opportunities with organic farms there. Enjoy!
