Oh, where do I begin. I could go on and on about the wonders of this area of West Cork. Below are some highlights from my own experience.

Watch this short video from Failte Ireland to give you a flavour of the awsome beauty of our place which has come to be known as The Wild Atlantic Way.

INCREDIBLE COASTAL DRIVES AND WALKS everywhere you go. Walk 15 minutes from the house and there you are surrounded by the most breathtaking Atlantic seascapes of Toe Head.

CASTLETOWNSHEND (5 mins. away) is my local village. It is so picturesque with a great restaurant called Mary Anns, serving wonderful seafood. Skibbereen my local town (10 mins. away) is a market town with a warm heart and a great buzz... You will meet the whole world having coffee at Fields cafe, an institution.

THERE IS SO MUCH TO ENJOY in the cultural life of West Cork - drama, music of all kinds, art galleries, etc., always something to delight (see links page)

BANTRY AND CLONAKILTY are only half an hour or so away, both fantastic towns with great character and friendliness. Bantry has a great open air market which is well worth a visit for its atmosphere.

I AM LOST FOR WORDS TO DESCRIBE THE SKY ON A CLEAR NIGHT. It was on such a night that I first beheld that Big Moon. I had only been here about a month when on this night I walked into the sunroom and saw this huge moon just dangling over my little hill to the left. After that there never was any other name I could have called my meditation centre. Nature has been shinning on me ever since and will shine on you too in this place.

I HAVE LEFT IT TILL LAST TO TALK ABOUT THE MOST GLORIOUS THING about West Cork and that is the people. You will have to discover them for yourself. I hope to spend the rest of my life doing just that.
