  • Description


    Hi my name is Angus, I was brought up in the area and I took over this farm twenty years ago. Since then I have made this lovely traditional Irish farm yard in to a venue for parties and various occasions.
    Though out the year I rent out the main house and a cottage on the property.
    in recent times I have started a micro brewery with a friend we make IPA, strong ale and stout of course!
