Green Acres: Farmstays in County Cork

With hundreds of acres of sheep pastures and farm land, Cork is a great place to stay on a working farm. The group Farmhouse Holidays lists hundreds of farm B&Bs around the country -- dozens in County Cork alone -- that offer inexpensive guest rooms, great breakfasts, fresh air, and the chance to glimpse real farm life.

Prices are often below €100 for a double room, and the eggs you eat for breakfast will probably have been collected that morning from the farm's hens.
