The Experience

Shantullig is an old farmhouse with new stone extension in the beautiful West Cork countryside not far from the sea. Nature takes over very quickly here, so help is always needed in the garden and to establish a vegetable patch. There is plenty to do if the weather doesn't suit outside work and the largest stone sheds (the original dwelling house) has been restored but needs finishing inside. See the photos to get an idea and do ask questions!
