    Our house is next door to Ballymaloe House best known for its family run country house and home grown produce used in the kitchen. We are a five minute drive from the Ballymaloe Cookery School and ten minutes from Ballycotton. We are a family that promotes good food and a healthy lifestyle. We have bikes you can borrow to explore the local area and a dog that needs walking.

  • Help


    We are looking for a couple/two friends to help in the garden. We have two acres of land that is slowly being landscaped. There is a lot weeding and preparing the grounds, vegetable patches and trees for the winter and next spring. There are also a couple of DIY jobs that we'd really welcome some help with around the house for those rainy days.

    The area we live in is very beautiful close to beaches and seaside villages. There is an amazing cliff walk in ballycotton and long beach walks in Shanagarry. We are close to woods and have swimming facilities in summer and access to a tennis court. I have a bike that is free to be borrowed to explore the area.
    We have a music venue close by with a variety of concerts held regularly from Traditional Irish music to contemporary world music.
    A bus stops at the end of the road can take you to Midelton,our closest town or Cork our closest city, although there are always people to get a lift off.
