This is how Oldfarm bed and breakfast evolved.
In the early 2000’s we (Alfie and Margaret) moved from Dublin to rural Tipperary.
This smallholding consists of 5 acres on which we grow pigs, sheep, hens, ducks, occasionally turkeys and as much fruit and vegetables as we can. The rest of the family includes a grumpy 14 year old cat, and our two dogs.
In 2013 we started our B&B journey, and over the ensuing years have met so many wonderful people from all over the world. AirBnB awarded us ‘Superhost’ status that first year and we are thrilled to have maintained that award since. Last year just 2 years into our journey with Booking.com we were awarded 9.6/10!
Ours is a small bed and breakfast with 3 rooms available that can accommodate max. 6 guests. We are just 2 hours from Dublin and Cork, and an hour from Galway or Limerick. All of this makes us a perfect destination for a short break, or a ‘staycation’.
What you can expect
It is with great pride that we can tell you that breakfast during your stay is definitely homemade and mostly organic ingredients grown here. You can opt to join us for dinner ‘in the kitchen’ during your stay. Once again, all home-cooked, probably home-grown and organic.
Wide open spaces to explore, and peace and quiet is guaranteed, away from the hustle and bustle here in Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands. Just come, sit back, relax and watch the grass grow. Or as darkness falls admire the beautiful night skies with no light pollution to spoil the view.
If you are travelling from afar let us know your interests and we will do our best to point you in the right direction. We would be delighted to make recommendations for your itinerary.

Are you planning on researching your ancestry, we can put you in touch with local historians who may be able to offer some insight.
We live on a smallholding in North Tipperary where we offer guests an opportunity to stay in our Bed and Breakfast. A perfect spot for anyone considering a staycation. We are Superhosts on AirBnB. We run pig rearing and bread-making courses both online and offline. We offer guests a large welcome on our small farm, with the option of joining us for dinner. We grow a fair percentage of our own food. Your breakfast when you stay will be freshly cooked…. consisting of our own organic and free-range eggs and sausages. Google+
