  • Additional info
  • We appreciate that most of the helpers who will come to us will have a focus on learning English. We will take an interest in their studies and help them if they wish. We will advise them about places of cultural or touristic interest. In particular, there is an Irish Cultural Institute, Aras Chronain, close to our house.

    We have one of the best preserved round towers in the country about 200 yards from our house, a (free) public library 50 yards from the house and a fourteenth century tower house right beside our house. Nonetheless we are right in the heart of all practical amenities with churches, supermarkets, other shops and trams close by and buses at our doorstep.
