Guests can interact as much or as little as they wish and I will be available to advise on tour routes or day trips if necessary. I am a non smoker and I love my guests enjoy their cigarette smoking in the garden rather than inside the house.
Respect, care and cleanliness are values that I like.

As a family we had the pleasure of hosting many international guests over the years through an organisation called Servas and it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. I am passionate about my garden, music, cooking and travel and the area where we live - Co Longford. We have the most amazing bogland and forest walks not to mention the rivers Shannon (10mns drive), Camlin (in Longford town) and the Inny River (15 mns drive) and the Royal Canal. We also enjoy cycling, walking and horse-back riding (mostly hacking). Our house is 5 mns walk from the Railway Station and Bus Station. Trains connect with Dublin and Sligo several times daily. Buses connect with Dublin, Galway, Ballina, Sligo and Belfast also on a daily basis. You can also get a bus directly from Dublin Airport to Longford. Go to the Information Desk on arrival and ask for details.
