Our forefathers were clever people and when establishing a homestead, shelter, rather than “the view” was uppermost in their minds.... typical of that thinking is Loughbeg farm : secludes in the low lands, while “the view” is aplenty, north, south, east and west from the high lands that rise up from the homestead towards the sou’west and the sun !
Today the homestead is on a grander scale than that of the ancestors, the main house , while incorporating the charm of the old home, is much more that of a family home; and there is a two bedroomed guest cottage, adjacent , but not too close for comfort; while the mechanics of the workings of the farm are housed in an all purpose modern building .
Delightful place to rear a family, retire to, just grow old enjoying the peace and quiet in a rural setting.
