Interaction with Guests
I visit daily to offer any help they need. I have a studio in the upper yard where I live during the summer.
Amazing! Sometimes I think its like living in a national park.There are many historical areas to visit, Rathbeagh is named after the famous Rath just 50 meters from the Farmhouse, there is also a lovely birdwatching area locally. There are pubs and supermarkets within 2 miles
There is no public transport so you will need a car.
