    Travelers can benefit by seeing how a wedding venue runs and by meeting people from all over the world. We also have a really good team of staff from the local community who are very friendly and who can give you a good insight into life in Ireland. All our staff and Workawayers are very friendly and helpful. Nenagh is a vibrant town with lots of local shops and good transport. We have a boat on the lake facing the house that makes for a lovely adventure on Lough Ourna.
