My name is Richard. I live in Cork City within a few mins walk from the apartment. I am married to Catherine and we have three children, two boys and a girl. I work in property.
The family love to holiday in Kerry and we enjoy water sports- pier jumping, sailing, surfing and swimming. When we can, we love to snow board and ski in France and Norway but that doesn't happen as often as we would like.
At this point in our lives we're just busy with family things-school runs, homework, rugby and hockey matches etc.
We have just begun Airbnb. We are really excited about it and really want to give it our best shot. We hope you that you like our place and that you will come and stay with us.
