About the Host, Lorraine
I am a people person, and as I like to travel I also enjoy meeting travellers from different parts of the world. . I enjoy the outdoors and hail rain or shine I try and go for a walk every day whether it is on one of the many Golden Miles located close to our home or on the nearby beaches of Kinvara, The Flaggy Shore or Salthill. Good quality food is important to me and I source all the food for my family and guests from the best local suppliers. My favourite restaurant is The White Gables in Moycullen. Having lived and worked in London, New York, Galway and Northern Ireland I enjoy a wide range of ethnic foods. The best holiday I had was a family wedding in Lake Garda Italy. I also operate a hair salon which is located in the basement of my home. The Galway Races held on the last week of July is the busiest time of the year for the B&B. Thoor Ballylee which was WB Yeats summer home for twelve years is one of my favourite places to visit. My message to my guests is that my home is your home.
