Last weekend the Irish Times Weekend magazine published an article on the 100 Best Places to Stay in Ireland. We are thrilled to be included in this prestigious listing in Ireland’s most influential newspaper! We have worked at our business for so many years with the intention that we provide a ‘real rural experience’ for our guests. Travel writer Catherine Mack described Fuchsia Lane Farm as offering ‘the best farm fåilte (Irish for welcome) that you could get’. We won’t argue against that! Inclusion in this list has given us a fantastic boost and acknowledgment for our efforts.
We don’t strive to have a huge business here but rather one that allows us to share our place with others who value space, peace, closeness to nature and the chance to be ‘with themselves’. For us it’s a business that allows us to create a life where we can work where we live, and work at what we love.
We hope our guests enjoy it too!

Here at Fuchsia Lane Farm Holiday Cottages we believe that family time is vital. Our Lodge Cottage is perfect for larger family groupings and the Studio Room, with its own tv, bunk beds and futon, make it an ideal space for younger family members to chill and have their ‘own space’. However, many of us have very fond childhood memories where we lazed in a tent and watch the ever changing colours and patterns reflect off the canvas as we lazed and enjoyed the cosy heat that is typical of a tent on a warm day. With this in mind we welcome guests who want to pitch their own tent at the Lodge Cottage to afford themselves some extra space. We can also supply one of ours for you, if you wish.
In this way guests can have the freedom of a camping experience with the comfort of the cottage just a few paces away!
