yes, at times we’ve felt like we ran (or at least I did) a B&B over the years! Especially at Christmas and New Year when we would have family and friends staying.
And, yes, for years people have come and stayed and said ‘you know you should run a B&B’! My brother has been telling me for years that folks who live in apartments in Manhattan would love to just sit on our stoop (or as I fondly call it my Martha Stewart room – watch this video – I think I have a bit of planning to do before I get to this!! But a girl can dream, right?)
Anyway back to visitors…. they could sit out there and watch the light changing the view as the sun sets, listen to the birds and watch the grass grow or the pigs graze!
So we’ve taken the giant step. We’ve signed up to AirBnB….. check out our listing!
And folks we’ve had our first couple of visitors!!!!
Besides meeting nice people, it is also going to be a huge geography lesson! We’ve had a family from Australia and one from Kentucky…. so I’m busy with the atlas checking out where exactly they live!
So far, we’ve had fun with it.
Yes, it is hard work, but as I say we’ve met lovely people which makes it all worthwhile.
We’ve sat around drinking tea, talking and chatting for hours.
And, yes, the folks from Kentucky got to sit on the stoop and enjoy the view!
So wish us luck with this new ‘farm diversification’ venture!
And of course if you know anyone at home or abroad who’d like to come stay in rural Tipperary for a night or two, we’d absolutely love your recommendation.
