  • Description

    Description

    We are a very active older couple. With wide-ranging interests. I design and make knitwear to sell and Robin is a bee keeper. We live in the countryside close to the Burren, in an old cottage which we renovated in the 90s. We have a very large garden and a woodland. My main interest is in creating an ornamental garden, growing a large variety of perennials, shrubs and trees. Robin grows vegtables and keeps sheep. as well as the bees.

    We have hosted hundreds of volunteers over the years and enjoy meeting new people. Volunteers can learn how it's possible to earn an independent living in the countryside and how to create a garden. We live in a beautiful area, with lots of opportunities for hiking and exploring the Burren, its geology and archaeology.
