Overlooked by the majestic Twelve Ben mountains this agri tourism enterprise incorporates a Heritage Centre and Farmhouse B&B.

Martin & Nora and their family run a hill farm in the heart of Connemara.

In 1992 they diversified into agri tourism and at the Heritage Centre the family share the history, heritage, culture & traditions of the Connemara.  The farm has cattle, sheep and the world famous Connemara Ponies with a few friendly donkeys & chickens.

The centre is based around the restored prefamine cottage of Dan O' Hara who was forced to emigrate in the 1840's when he was evicted from his home.
