I'm a musician, and have done my share of travelling to play music. I toured in Europe and the US a lot in the 90's, when I was based in London. Musically, I've played a lot of traditional Irish music, and lots of jazz, gypsy jazz, bluegrass, etc. I moved back to Ireland in 1998, and recently discovered that my ancestors were from Kinvara! I've also worked as a plumber/handyman, and I built the cabins, and restored the cottage, myself. I love the idea of minimalist living, and have always thought I would like to live in a small space, though I never managed to minimalise my possessions enough! I also love the idea of a dwelling that has no negative impact on the environment, and we've made a lot of effort to ensure that the cabins are almost totally off-grid. Catherine is from Germany, and arrived here ten years ago. She fell in love with the rugged west coast immediately, and has developed a range of craft jewellery which use local flowers, fauna, and beach stuff. She is passionate about interior design and you can see her artful eye in the interior design of the cabins and the cottage. She is also a keen gardener, and the gardens are bursting with colour in the summer. And she grows salads and other stuff in the polytunnel!

During your stay

We are both happy to meet and converse with guests. We have been living here for a few years, and Catherine in particular knows lots of great things to do and see locally. Equally, we are happy to leave people to their own peace/sense of adventure, if that's what you prefer.
