From the Owner
“Apart from spending time with family, Chris and Kathy enjoy long walks along the coastline. They are also fans of the local lively nightlife - they love traditional Irish music and can often be seeing dancing well in to the early hours! Chris spends many a day on his little fishing boat, pulling up lines of mackerel, a pollock or two, or a nice flattie for supper.”
