After recent success in gaining his Mariphone (VHF) Licence Peter has been enthusiastically looking to regain some experience at his former love – the sea. More explicitly on the ocean wave. His dreams seem to have fulfilled recently when the website http://www.bandbireland.com have shown Glenribbeen Eco Lodge to be Ireland’s very first OFF-SHORE B&B.
Els and Peter are pleased (though confused) to add this honour to the already impressive list of awards and ‘firsts’ for their ground-breaking (!!!) B&B. Peter has been quoted as saying “though there is a history of boats in the family – my grandfather helped build the Titanic and my father was shipping manager for some small firms in Dundalk – I never really saw me actually running Ireland’s first floating B&”. He later added “of course I do have a Dutch ‘off-shore’ licence for commercial craft up to 20meters as well as experience on square-riggers and we have the Canadian canoe and a small sailboat we can use for groceries etc”.
Els simply wants to know “What about my garden?”.
The adventurous couple are thinking about now moving South in winter to “”Add a little extra for our Winter-guests.
