Your Local Host:

Colin and Cathy

Moving to Ireland in 2009, we left the frenetic buzz of big city life behind us, hoping to create a different lifestyle in the countryside. Colin, who is an Irishman, already had the love of the west of Ireland imprinted in his heart, having spent all his childhood summers fishing the many rivers and loughs for its famous wild salmon and trout.

In search of our ‘place’ in this crazy world, we chose the wilds of Connemara on the Wild Atlantic Way to settle and see if it would measure up to our high expectations…and boy does it deliver on that, and much, much more!
