About our home

Our home is comfortable, clean, and roomy. It has large combination kitchen/dining room w/ fireplace, Living room w/ fireplace and a study; the two bedrooms are upstairs. The site is private, off the roadway, and all rooms offer views of Glendelogh lake and the 12 Bens Mountains across verdant green open countryside. The site has front garden of heather, hebe, gorse and native wildflowers; a rear garden has hydrangia and native plants. I love spending time in my home and having friends over, it is warm and inviting and the views are everchanging and simply spectacular.
