Helen and Brendan Doherty are a married couple, originally from Co.Wicklow. They moved their family to Westmeath ten years ago and have lovingly restored the old buildings, breathing new life into the ancient stones. Feeling privileged to live in this tranquil setting and responding to favourable comments from friends and family who have come to stay, they decided to open their doors to the wider community so that others can avail of that peace.
