We moved to Ballynoe House in 2015, retiring to Felicity’s ancestral homeland. Our guesthouses were opened in April 2018 following an 8-month conversion. Video
Felicity is a portrait and pet portrait artist who also loves quilting and experimenting with textiles. Her work can be found inside the guesthouses as well as around the woodland walk. Having left the area at the age of six and travelled the world, she finally feels at home back in beautiful West Cork.
A significant number of her family and friends run quality businesses in the area.
As the full-time gardener of 5 acres and resident family historian and genetic genealogist, Mark has been researching both his and Felicity’s British & Irish roots, supporting collaborative family history & DNA research, since 1979. He has several genealogical blogs on Facebook and a newspaper column. Guests benefit from free help with their British and Irish family history or seek advice on research and their DNA test results. He is a former Director of the Clonakilty Chamber of Commerce.
