  • Description


    Hi we live in a beautiful place in Ventry on the Dingle Peninsula (5 minutes from the beach) where you can stay in your own private and cosy wooden house for your comfort and privacy. We are Sarah, Tim, Silva 6 years old and Ailbhe 13 years old. We live in a beautiful house with organic vegetable garden which we eat from daily. Our current project is to revamp the house and garden, so gardening, painting, cleaning and a little babysitting would be daily activities. We also want to build a sauna and re-install a hot tub. Sarah is an wholefood cookery teacher aswell as Doula and Tim is a environmental consultant. We love music, eating good food and sailing. We have bikes for you to use and are 10 min drive from Dingle Town.
