This was the highlight of our trip to Ireland from the states. Mary is the sweetest & we had so much fun with her. As well as learned a lot. Great family feeling & great food & drink. We visited in November 2018.

I spent a night staying at Mary's home whilst up to visit Lough Boora and Birr . I was delighted to discover a room in such a bright cheerful home to stay in the quiet of the countryside. Mary's house is a lovingly restored old farmhouse which is spotlessly clean, the bed was very cosy, and the rooms were airy and spacious. I choose one with good WIFI. Mary gave me a lovely fresh breakfast including homemade granola, dairy free bread and fresh eggs in the morning, which set me up for the day. I felt very welcome in this house, and appreciated the environmentally conscious choices provided for visitors here, while enjoying in the the genuine warmth of Mary's company. I especially enjoyed her lovely garden. I also benefits from browsing through some of her collection of books on plants there. I could sincerely recommend a stay at Mary's house, to my best friends and hope to return again.

Completed a foraging walk with Mary over the weekend, Found the walk very educational and fun..sampled some of her products also and would highly rate them,,,,beneficial course to do - even if you only take one or two tips from the course and use them it will be worthwhile. Suitable for all age groups...I would recommend...Mary was happy to answer questions as part of the forage walk...

What a wonderful day. We meet our wonderful guide Mary and set straight to work. Heading for the hills to pick some delicious blueberries. Every weed, plant, herds along way Mary explained to us the medicinal qualities and how to use it. From arthritis and heart problem to aniexty and jet lag. Mary had a remedy. After we went on our nature walk and berry pick, we headed back to Mary's stunning home for some lunch that she had prepared for us. Cheese from the local farm, fruits and veg from her own garden. Everything was as local as she could get! We also sampled some of her beautiful wines and spirits. What a treat that was! To finish we got about of her garden and learnt more about plants and weeds that are magical FREE remedies mother nature provides! One tip I would suggest before Mary starts here wonderful tour one person of the group records her as the amount of knowledge the women has knows no limits! The perfect activity for any occasion, we were a Hen Party (which the hangover remedies save some lives that day!) and everyone of us were impressed by Mary's knowledge and how warm and friendly she was. Thanks again Mary, You played a pivotal roll in Christine's Hen Weekend!
