A traditional Irish cottage from the 1940’s. The original stonefloor and high ceilings have been kept intact. Even the hooks for drying meat are still there!
Hanne’s Cottage sits on about 1.2 acres of semi wild land. It is managed, consciously managed. For wildlife. The grass is growing tall and so is the myriad of wildflowers.
Hanne sees it as her finest duty to be the guardian of Derrynavahagh and the creatures that inhabits it. During the four years she has been in Derrynavahagh she has watched in awe; a red squirrel, pine marten, foxes, hares, many many smaller birds, among them a young robin that deemed her a friend and sat on her hand and the latest addition; long eared owls nesting in an old crows nest in the little woodland, never previously recorded in the area. Derrynavahagh is an ever unfolding ARK = Act of Restorative Kindness towards the Earth Inspired by Mary Reynolds.
HANNE’S COTTAGE IS GENTLE WITH NATURE. OUTSIDE AS WELL AS INSIDE. WE ARE NATURE TOO.
