We moved from England to Ireland in 2002, looking to retire in a few years. Those few years turned into ten years because the cottage we bought in 2003 took far longer to fix up than we originally planned. Although we did very little structural work ourselves, most of the internal work is our own. It's been a tough time but it's finished now, and we are delighted with the results.
We are both very happy here, and we've made many friends both locally and farther afield. It's great for walking and cycling, and there is a strong community spirit. We love visiting quaint Irish towns and villages, people are very friendly and helpful wherever you go. It's a pleasant change after many years of urban living.
We both share an interest in classic cars - I maintain and repair them, and both Aileen and I like driving them. There are several active classic and vintage car clubs in the Limerick area. There are many meetings and shows, particularly in the summer months.
We also like to travel, and one of our favourite destinations is Paris. We have a passion for staying in places with character, and where the service is friendly and helpful. We hope that our passion is reflected in the character of Three Gables, and in the service we provide. We sincerely hope that you enjoy your stay with us.
John and Aileen.
