    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The area is a typical Irish farming environment - far from towns and cities - close to nature ; - mountains and Wicklow way walking route and historical sites quite close and accessible. If you want a quiet place to think, write , meditate , commune with nature then this is a good place for you. The studio is the work place of an artist with paintings on view.
    There is NO PUBLIC TRANSPORT to the area but as a host I will do the best I can to make time to drive you about to places of interest and bring you with me to visit nearby towns when the occasion arises.
