Stay here and you could give this host their first review!
I was brought up in Donegal, a very beautiful part of Ireland, by the sea.I still go back there often. In my earlier years I travelled quite a bit, throughout the States, and overland to India from England many years ago.Besides Ireland, I have lived and worked in Canada, studied in Scotland, worked in England and studied in Boston. Originally I trained and worked as a social worker which finally led me to train as a Family Therapist in Boston. I returned to Ireland many years ago where I continue to work as a psychotherapist
My favourate travel destination is Greece, particularly Corfu.I enjoy reading , music, cinema and painting and particularly enjoy spending time with friends.
I am also very delighted that so many people have enjoyed staying in my Scandinavian Lodge in Glenmalure, Wicklow. I love to spend time there myself, so much to do and so relaxing.....a dream place!! Welcome all
