Foraging and Lunch in Historic House Estate - Cork
You will meet Justin who lives with his family in this fourth-generation family-owned period home. Growing up it was an active dairy farm where Justin recalls spending many a school holiday milking cows, driving tractors, feeding animals and digging holes. Situated on an estate of idyllic landscaped gardens and magnificent parkland, located in the historic region of the Munster Blackwater Valley. After a career in the management of prestigious hotels around the world, Justin returned home with his wife Jenny in 2000 and took over the running of this magnificent period home as a perfect retreat for guest experiences.
