This year my husband Peter and I made the decision to starbusiness in our family home THE GLASSHOUSE.
We have been visiting the Dingle peninsula on holiday for more than 30 years and our love for this beautiful part of the country has led us to now make it our home full time.
Our unique home was built 20 years ago and was designed by myself to accomodate family and friends who shared our love for the house and the area. We hope you will come as a stranger and leave as a friend.
