Barbara's home is a magical hide-away filled with Celtic music, mythology, and art. Barbara and Bernard are fascinating to talk with and we so enjoyed our visit.

You're family now! We look forward to seeing you soon again. Once the barn is completed, we will need to coordinate activities. We're SO glad Airbnb brought us together...

Regretfully, there was a miscommunication issue, and we didn’t end up keeping the reservation. AirBnB and Barbara were great with issuing the refund. I wish Barbara and her husband the best for their future with AirBnB.

Interaction with guests
Since we work from home, either my husband or I should be on hand most of the time. We do have our private work spaces which gives everyone some separation. A couple who will only occupy one room may book as one person and get the single rate.
