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.
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.
