2002 New Beginnings

Early in 2002, the Scott family decided that it was time for a change. Crime in South Africa was getting worse - with no sign of it abating. They say the grass isn't always greener on the other side, but in our case it was (literally) - because we had decided to move to Ireland. 

Lucan village

We had no intention of buying a B&B when we left South Africa .. but one fortunate day when visiting the Lucan village, we noticed a B&B with a FOR SALE sign. We fell in love with the quaint historic dwelling and made the big decision to go for it! 

Water under the bridge

2015 and there's been lots of water under the bridge - literally and figuratively. We've lived through the boom times and we made it through the recession.

The tourists have been flocking back to Ireland in the droves and we expect 2015 to be especially busy with the weak Euro at the moment.

Why not take advantage of the great value to be had in Europe at the moment and book your holiday now.

Genevieve is the one normally responsible for the jokes, laughing and giggling. She has mastered the setting of the breakfast tables and I'm sure in a few years will be able to serve breakfasts too. For now, let's leave her unpacking the dishwasher. ;-)
