We're so excited that you'll be coming to celebrate our 50th (plus...) anniversary with us in this extraordinarily special place.
You've been a part of our lives - this long and winding road - as we've laughed, stumbled, exulted, struggled, laughed, cried, given up, and tried, tried again. You've been there at the high points and the low points, and your presence in our lives has enriched us in immeasurable ways.
Aside from our two extraordinary daughters and their children, our time in Ireland has been the most immense blessing of our lives. As we often say, "In two extraordinarily ordinary lives, this is something very cool, and very improbable, we've been able to pull off." Fourteen summer visits - two traveling and twelve settled in Westport - and of ever increasing length. Starting at three weeks for the first several years, extending to eight for the last six, and stretching out to four months in 2020. We can't believe our good fortune.
Please check updates to this tab as we add tips and hints to maximize the fun of your visit. Count on us for a rousing celebratory party during your stay, and for insider information about pubs, restaurants, cafes, music, day trips, golf courses, salmon fishing guides, photo spots, etc. Feel free to reach out with questions at any time. It is our fervent hope to be able to help you drink in all of this marvelous culture and breathtaking natural beauty during your visit.
