  • Accommodation


    Guesthouse accommodation. Ensuite bedroom, large sole use of a private sitting room and use of the large kitchen
    There is an extension to the guesthouse where the family previously lived. This is where the workawayer would live. This consists of a double bedroom with a bathroom, and large sitting/dining/kitchen area. It is open plan. The kitchen is just off the breakfast room so Serena has a minimal use of the kitchen in the morning for the purpose of cleaning the self service breakfast room. We are not offering hot breakfasts any more, so there is no cooking in the mornings. There is a shed and a decking area also for sunny days. Just off the kitchen there is a small space where Serena will spend her time while working in the guest house, to do administration/paper work, laundry, and the kids will come in the afternoons for a few hours when school is finished.
    You can see the National Park from the extension, and the entrance is very close by. Walking and jogging in this area is very popular with locals. We are a 40-45 walk through the park to Ross Castle
