Interaction with guests
I live in Belfast which is 2.5 hrs drive from Dunfanaghy. But as this is my holiday home and I have being going all of my life and went to school in the village I know it very well! I am very happy to help with suggestions about what to see, where to go and where to eat. Sarah is my cleaning lady and lives 10 mins away if there are any immediate problems. I am just a phone call away!
