  • Description


    Hi My name is Caitriona. I live in the beautiful blackwater valley near Mallow co. Cork Ireland. Its a very old Georgian property with beautiful old wooded parkland and a lovely walled garden.

    I keep some horses, mostly for pleasure riding and some broodmares. The property is 5 minutes from the mainline trainstaion and bus which gives you access to all parts of Ireland. Were 30 mins from Cork City.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You are coming to a most beautiful part of Ireland on the edge of the Sliabh Luachra which has a very rich traditional Irish music and cultural heritage.
    You will be living in a place that has been unspoiled for 200 years with nature very much in evidence all around you

    I would love someone who is interested in maintaining and restoring part of the garden from a tenniscourt to a wild prairie garden

    Your own double bedroom in my home with separate bathroom. Ample food will be supplied and it would be nice to exchange cooking experiences with visitors. I will be cooking on at least 2 evenings per week which if people wanted they could join me. If this doesnt suit they are more than welcome to cook for themselves.
