Hello, I live here in the Kilkenny countryside with my 2 kids and work 5 miles away in Castlecomer, renovating furniture and selling it in my shop "Eclectic Interiors" in The Discovery park. Born in the UK, I moved here 20 years ago (my mother's Irish) and forgot to go home! I love Ireland; the people have charm and wit ...and when the sun shines it's the most beautiful place to be. Actually, when the rain is falling (which doesn't happen as much as you are led to believe, especially here in the sunny South-East ) it's still pretty amazing! Music, mountains, delicious food, Dublin City, beautiful beaches all within an hour and a half drive can't be bad!
I'm an air B&B virgin...but I am going to India at the same time as The Kilkenny Arts Festival this year (bad timing....means I'll miss seeing "My Brightest Diamond" ) and I thought someone could take advantage of my empty house! Kilkenny is a fantastic small city and the festival is world class...The Royal Shakespeare Company, International contemporary and Classical music and Art.....the buzz is amazing.
