Guestbook comments from the owner
We have arrived home ;) Your mom is a love and we loved being in Ireland. We put over 1,000 miles on the car stretching from the Cliffs of Moher to Castles here and there to Waterford to the Wicklow Mountains and then to Dublin. Your country is beautiful and GREEN! :) It was wonderful to have your home to always come back to…never more than (at most with my navigating) a 2:15 drive. We would get home and go for a little stroll and meet up with some very friendly cows! ;) Love the beautiful flowers on the rock walls, and explored the graveyard. We went to pubs and listened to wonderful Irish music and watched Irish dancing at Lanigans!! EVERYONE was so very friendly and helpful….but we did learn that no one knows the names of the streets..because they've lived there for their entire lives…so we identified colleges, Ys, pubs, "a couple streets past….", and I realized that I do the same thing! Pass the dog on the corner, take a right at the second tree on the green.. hee hee ;) Our family had a wonderful, relaxing time together and despite a little bout with the flu for my daughter and me, we are all coming home relaxed, educated, and looking forward to another trip back! Your home is just beautiful! I loved feeling like we were home. You've done such a beautiful job with making it modern, yet keeping the old Irish farmhouse feel. We loved the peace and quiet…and the space for each of us who were coming from different parts of life…finishing a semester abroad, graduation and job hunting, work… it was just what we needed.
I'll say that the only thing missing was being able to meet you! Your mum is just lovely and I could listen to her for hours! Your brother was a sweetheart about suggesting where we could eat, and the boys all went to the pub for some evening fun. They taped the dancers and music for Lynnie and me since we were down-and-out, and we just loved it!!
Thank you for making everything so very easy and relaxed in all of the planning stages! If you are back in the States, look us up! We are very close to NYC and love friends popping in to our home!
The best to you and your family!!
The old house has been in the family for 500 years. We recently renovated it. I lived in the house for the past 2 years. I just got a job in London and so I had to move. The area is very local and you will meet local people if that is what you want. If you want to be alone you can do that too. Its real Ireland
Unique, quiet, peaceful, and you will know you are in Ireland.
Privacy. Old house country cottage feel. Peaceful. Spacious.
