An Tionól Cottage

Creative & Compassionate Living Centre

We live in a 200-year-old stone farmhouse where traditionally the neighbours used to get together to play music and dance in the usual Irish way. We named it “An Tionól” – a gathering of people – in honour of this. It’s where our kids were born and the idea of Green Spiral became a reality. We have refurbished and extended the house using natural materials such as wood, slate and local stone and we also garden and grow our vegetables organically.

The house is located near the end of a quiet country road in an area of lakes, ancient oak forest, rivers and folk history. It is situated 15 minutes from the town of Gort and is also close to the spectacular Burren area – a region of great beauty with its limestone pavements, unique flora and megalithic tombs. The cottage is also within easy reach of such tourist attractions as the Cliffs of Moher, Galway City and Connemara.
