Mr C P Brown purchased this bungalow in 1980
Chris and Kathy built this property and have regularly updated both the interior and exterior. They chose this location because of the beautiful scenery and close proximity to many attractions.
Apart from spending time with family, Chris and Kathy enjoy long walks along the coastline. They are also fans of the local lively nightlife - they love traditional Irish music and can often be seeing dancing well in to the early hours!
Chris spends many a day on his little fishing boat, pulling up lines of mackerel, a pollock or two, or a nice flattie for supper.
