Interaction with guests
I live just across the road and will arrange to meet you on arrival. Should there be anything you require I will do my utmost to provide for you. I can give you hints and tips on exploring Ireland and local hidden gems. Because there is no broadband in this area there is no internet in the cottage but you can use it for free in a common room at the rear of my hose where there is wireless wifi.
