Our home

We are very lucky to live in a beautiful old manor house set on the edge of a village. Extending to 6,000 square foot, it is very comfortable family home with formal rooms side by side with play rooms for kids and sauna rooms for adults.

Set on approximately 2 ½ acres of lawns and vegetable gardens, the house is a truly relaxing haven with ample room to entertain. It might be interesting to read an article written about the house for an Irish paper see - http://www.independent.ie/lifestyle/home-garden/my-home-is-my-canvas-2141932.html

Despite it’s age and beauty the house is a home to ourselves, our two teenage kids and many guest friends, two dogs and a cat. We feel lucky to live here and are sure you would enjoy it too.

Very happy to swap cars which in our case is an Audi A6 and a Jeep Compass.

Who we are

  1. About us !! Polly is an paper artist and an arts education specialist, working for the Crafts Council of Ireland. Ivan is a business man, who is a keen member of the local tennis & golf clubs, while studying International affairs at night. We have two children Max 16 and Eloise 14.

    We would really like to go to the South of France for the last week of July and first week in August 2014. We would love somewhere that allowed the kids to be somewhat independent and be able to travel by public transport into a town. Ideally with a pool

There are beautiful walks nearby and with Dublin, Cork or the coast less than an hour and a half away it is a great place to be tour Irelands rich heritage, especially during 2013 which is The Year of the Gathering
