We are a semi retired couple, but we are very active! Our children are grown-up so it's a quiet household and we have decided to let out our garden apartment occasionally. It is perfect as a base to explore the south coast of Ireland. It is also an ideal location to do some hill walking . Carrauntoohil is close by and is the highest mountain in Ireland. We love meeting new people and hope they enjoy our beautiful country.
