  • Descrição


    Hello travellers, I'm William and this is my partner Andrew. We work in the arts and live in West Cork Ireland. I'm a visual artist born and raised here and Andrew works between here and London.

    We live in a little cottage that sits on the Atlantic coast which is nesting in a wild and beautiful garden with views out over coastal headlands. The cottage is a short walk to local beaches and less than a 10 minute drive to local villages and town.

    This year we are building a large eco artist studio and managing our 0.8 acre garden.

    We are both English speakers but are familiar with a few others languages too. I can speak very basic Spanish, Swedish and German. Andrew can speak and understand a little flemish/dutch. Our Irish is VERY limited but if you are interested to learn then we can help guide you in the right direction.

    We're looking forward to hearing from you so get in touch!
