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.

Paul was exceptionally friendly and always available particularly when we had a minor emergency which he responded to and sorted very quickly. The area is lovely with fabulous beaches just a stone throw away and the sea was even warm enough for swimming every day. There is an excellent village shop at the end of the road for emergency supplies rather than going to Gorey which is 10 mins in the car. It was perfect for our few days of peace, rest and relaxation.

We had a lovely family holiday in Paul's property. The house is really comfortable and the location is something special. It's right beside the beach and surrounded by trees. There's loads to do in the surrounding area with pubs and shops nearby. Paul was really helpful and responded to any queries really quickly.

Paul and Karin were super hosts...really responsive and very flexible. Their home is a delight beside some fabulous beaches. They also made sure to leave some essentials like bread, milk, etc which was really appreciated. Great spot for a family getaway.

Every effort was made to make us feel welcome from my first contact with Paul. The welcome starter pack to the lovely bunch of flowers that Karin and Paul brought over on our arrival. We first came to visit for a week in April and we all agreed then, that we would love to come back. The house is so special and the area is really beautiful. Thanks for making our holiday in Ballymoney so wonderful. With all our best wishes Maura O'Malley and family

We've just returned from a lovely holiday in Paul's wonderfully warm and spacious house. Our arrival was delayed so it was great to be welcomed with a glowing fire in the stove and some basics in the fridge. We were taking my mother on a trip down memory lane and Paul was very helpful in finding some information for us beforehand and also recommending a good restaurant. The house is a great location for exploring the south east, or the sunny south east as it's known, which it certainly was! Paul and Karin are wonderful hosts and we would love to visit again before too long.

My wife and I enjoy growing our own vegetables, collecting our own oysters and mussels in Bannow Bay, swimming, long walks, gardening, traveling and good debate.

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!
