yellowIt’s been a relatively cool early summer, but the added benefit is the prolonged flowering of the wild flowers which this year is abundant keeping the bees happy. As the Dubliners celebrate Blooms day we are fortunate to be surrounded by the pastoral lushness away from the hustle and bustle yet still enjoying our pints, livers, and kidneys in the silence only broken by the sound of the wind and birdsong.

The long evenings of heather colored sunsets meadows waiting to be scythed and early dawns makes for an idyllic lifestyle that many visitors find envious. But we happy to share with them the piece and quiet of our beautiful island.
