Your Host

Chris your host says “I have been living in Ardmore House for the last 27 years and have enjoyed restoring this fine old house to its former glory and developing the gardens. It’s a joy to wake up each morning and take in the beautiful lush green landscape of the Slieve Bloom Mountains through the large picture windows of Ardmore House.”
