Interaction with Guests
Always greeted with a cup of tea!
West Cork is one of the most beautiful areas of Ireland and I keep maps and brochures of local sites and activities for guests to use.
Public transport is very sparse, so it is easier to come here by car, although if you are happy walking, and staying for more that one night, we are on a bus route from Cork, but only 3 buses a day.
Ce fut un réel plaisir de séjourner chez Annie. Encore une belle rencontre et de bons souvenirs que je garderais de mon voyage en Irlande.
Thank you Annie! We've spent one night there and it was lovely. Annie is a warming and welcoming person. The bedroom was cute and cosy. She has great stories to tell about her region, ask her about the priests leap, then when you leave her house, try the road on the right and you'll have an AMAZING view of the region ! (Thank you Annie for the advice!)
Annie and her place are very special. She made us feel welcome, and for us it was a lovely experience.
We had a great time at Annie's place. It's a little off the main road but not too far. We had a cosy upstairs bedroom with the bathroom nearby. Annie was very helpful with local information, we even went along to set dancing at the local pub and had a very enjoyable evening, thanks Annie.
Vriendelijke en geëngageerde gastvrouw, vele jonge mensen,superstille, rustige omgeving
Thank you Annie for one of the highlights of our holiday in Bantry! We had a really lovely time at Annie's house and felt instantly at home. Annie is so welcoming and interesting to meet and her place is in a most beautiful setting. Her farmhouse is lovingly restored and the room is very comfortable and cosy. Our 4-year-old enjoyed Annie's place immensely; the exploring, two lovely friendly dogs and a beautiful little river walk. We have been telling all our friends about Annie's place!
Annie was an awesome host! Her place was super unique! I loved hearing the story about how she has refurbished it! I would highly recommend staying here!
About the Host, Annie
I'm English, but have been living in West Cork for over 20 years, having Irish ancestry and feel I have come home. Originally a teacher I moved on to work as an Arts Manager, specialising in large outdoor events and community Arts through which I was an Environmental Educator for 14 years with my own company. I like to garden and I like to build! I have been developing my place to be a residential Arts Centre since I arrived here, with the help of friends and volunteers, especially through the WWOOF programme, which I now manage for the island of Ireland.
