She is a visual artist and lives in Mountshannon. In the Art House, she is doing workshops - look into her website given below,maybe you would like to attend? Most likely you can buy and look her art there as well.
I think we happened to be there in opening day, because we were there in May and I found her website, describing the event. We just saw a lot of people moving towards the inner yard of the house and followed.
People were enjoying themselves and one interesting looking man entertained us :)
We gave him a name - Mountshannon Pirate. Why? Look at the pics.
This is the main focal point for the visitor in Mountshannon. It is a park build with lot of flower beds and in the middle of it is a maze where you can find boards introducing the history and archaeological finds of early christianity and even pagans.
If you think park and maze - you imagine hedge maze - no, this one contained a stone built archways, stairs up and down...it was quite interesting to find the " chambers with boards" in numerological order and different sculptures found in there were a bonus.
Look my pics.
The village is beautiful and very peaceful, and you can see most of it in one hour. When you've done it, a good thing to do is to take a boat and visit Holy Island. It's an old christian settlement, now uninhabited, except for a few cows. I was travelling by kayak, so I went there by my own means, but there's at least one old man that will take tourists on his little boat for a few euros.
The house was inviting and promising. We didnt dine there because we ate in Scarriff
Favorite Dish: If I look from the website, the food choise is good. Look at the website. It is Georgina Campbells suggested place.
This website is very useful: http://www.ireland-guide.com/establishment/an_cupan_caife.6127.html
When we were finishing our tour around Mountshannon, we found lovely sun clock close to the entrance of the park.
Fondest memory: This pic is showing the time we finished our tour around the village. What time is it?
Mountshannon is a village on a Lough Derg Way drive and you can explore it in an hour or two.
Depends how deep you would like to digg. By walking this village through I can imagine that it would be perfect hideout or inspiration plae for an artist.
Fondest memory: There is a Main Street cutting village into two. I took Main Street until Art Studio and then turned into yach harbour, passed it and then went to Aistear Park.
There are some interesting buildings on the both side of Main Street. Even one old gas tank.
