Music - Ceol

Both my wife Catherine and I are experienced traditional musicians and teachers. Our daughter Katie, pictured, is also learning.  We offer classes on a number of instruments - guitar, banjo, whistle, flute and accordion. If you would like to have a lesson please just let us know. We also have for sale my first novel, 'Nut Hollow, the Knife and Nefairious' priced in shops at £15 (£10 for guests). See below for details.


This is an epic Irish fantasy adventure set along the magical North Antrim Coast, in the fields you see from your window to be precise! It tells the tale of the fairies of Nut Hollow, an idyllic spot at the foot of the field where the river runs. They have lived happily these many years with only the occasional worry but all of a sudden worry is going to knock loudly upon their doors!

Away with Words

A new original collection of poetry also available in house.

If you enjoy traditional Irish music, song and story teling you only have to visit our kitchen. Based on the centuries old tradition of 'the céilí' friends and neighbours will drop in from time to time for a great night's entertainment. Bring your singing voices with you and feel free to join in. Sadly we can't guarantee a session for every visit but you never know your luck.
