  • Description


    I live in a rural location in the south of ireland in West Cork with two of my children. My daughter is 20 years and my son is 17 years old. We have dogs, ducks, and a cat. We live in a beautiful but quiet landscape that is about 15mins to a beautiful beach in Rosscarbery and 15mins in the other direction to the town of Skibbereen and Dunmanway and 30mins to Clonakilty. We are only one hour away from Cork city and 10mins from the bus stop to Cork if wanted. The landscape in this part of ireland is really diverse and picturesque.
