As a family we love the outdoors - walking, visiting local historical and archaeological sites as well as going to the National Park, Killarney (1 hour drive) and Dingle (1.5 hour drive). Travel, learning about new cultures and trying recipes from different countries. We enjoy gardening, painting & decorating, reading and music.
