Welcome to An Ghrian Glas Farm. Co. Westmeath. In March 2016, we were fortunate to buy a beautiful little farm in a rural area of Ireland's midlands. Here at An Ghrian Glas we have 9 acres in total.

Our aim is to live as sustainably as possible, within the realms of reason and sanity as we both have jobs aside from running our little plot.

In addition we have come to the realisation that we will need help if we are to make this dream a reality and so wish to open our home up to people of a similar desire to learn, to come and volunteer or house sit. For more information on volunteering or house sitting, check out the contact us section.
