Cruising on Past Efforts!
I am idling in the water by Valentia Island, following the success of my first month of B and B in Kilkenny. I enclose the following reviews as proof that my holiday here is absolutely called for, to rejuvenate. And, of course, encourage anyone who'd like to come and visit!

Frances and Jani were fantastic hosts. They were warm, welcoming, funny, and incredible cooks. Staying in their beautiful home was the highlight of our trip!!
My husband and I stayed for one night at Frances' home, arriving quite late. It is about a 10-minute drive outside of Kilkenny in the countryside, so ideally suited for guests looking to completely disconnect. Frances is very warm, welcoming and engaging. Upon our arrival, she offered us wine and showed us the grounds of her home, including her horse and her outdoor dance floor. We had great conversations about a variety of subjects, including her work and travel. We slept well despite the high temperatures and moved about the house comfortably. And if you like pets, she has two adorable dogs and a kitten. Upon our departure, she gifted us with her book on energy healing and space clearing. I don't think you will meet a more open and friendly host. Thank you, Frances.
I am not eloquent enough to describe our incredible stay with Frances. She is an extraordinary person with a fascinating life history, enormous passion, and generosity. She shared her unusually peaceful home, pasture, horse, kitty and dogs with us...just as much as we wanted. ( very sensitive to our desires). She prepared a wonderful vegan dinner, and breakfast, and even baked for us. She knows about energy fields and she shared her "clearing" practice with us, which was phenomonal. Highly recommend her retreat for a nourishing place to be.
It was a truly positive and joyful experience to stay with Franc as I explored South East Ireland by bicycle. It was easy to find from instructions on her site and in a place which allows the exploration of wonderful Irish areas around her. Her abode is restful and energy giving, the food prepared was just exquisite and heavenly, the conversation was stimulating and thought provoking and nothing was ever too much for Franc as she gave of her time with energy and willingness. Franc is a truly wonderful person to stay with and if you are ever touring this part of Ireland you will be missing a true gem if you do not stop a while. I can assure you that you will depart with energy and a spring in your step. For any cyclist out there Leinster, Ireland is a great place to explore on bicycle and stops like those of Franc will leave you wanting to return again. Thank you very much again Franc.
