Guest access

Bikes and kayaks

Interaction with guests

As much as the guests like to interact, we live just north over the stream, behind the trees in the 1930s modernist square white house.

The neighborhood

Tranquil with sea sounds and especially rich air. Beaches are steps away from the house and each one is unique and different with interesting geology.

Getting around

Getting to the local town Gorey from Dublin and other major centers is easy by public transport. From Gorey to Ballymoney, a bike or a taxi if no car. Local pubs/shop, a cafe and Hotel with bar and barfood - all within easy walking distance.

Other things to note

The house is especially attractive, very well laid-out with stunning views. Watching the sun rise out of the sea from your bed is a good way to start the day, followed by a swim before breakfast.

We love our children and our grand-children. We love to travel, visit friends and have friends over.

We also love slow-food and good wine!
